To Whom it May Concern,
I’ve heard about the debate of whether or not to
lengthen the school year. I decided to voice my opinion.
I believe that the school year should not be
lengthened. Kids are stressed out enough with homework
and school without adding more. Some might say
that kids aren’t learning enough, and since the
future of the nation rests on their shoulders they
need to go to school longer and learn more. I say
those who are adults now went to school the same
amount, if not shorter, of time that we do and they
haven’t completely ruined the country.
To make the country better you don’t just need to
know math, English, and history; you need to know
social skills like getting along with others. You
learn social skills like getting along with others.
You learn social skills at school but you can learn
them just as easily while on vacation. If you go to
another country for vacation you learn to accept and
respect other cultures. This can help extinguish
If you add more schoolwork and homework kids will
get more stressed out. When you’re stressed out you
aren’t as agreeable and sometimes just give up trying
and don’t care a difference in the world.
I once heard someone say that you are only a kid
for a short time. When you’re an adult you have
enough stress agre lotof and hardly any time. for
fun, so why put stress on kids and make them lose
their time for fun. Why turn them into adults before
I completely agree with the person who said this.
Let kids have fun and not be stuck in a hot school
listening to a lecture, or at home doing homework
when they used to be swimming or hanging out with
Thank you for considering my letter.
