For most, the idea of school comes with 180 days followed by a 3-month break during the summer. However, there is an alternative school schedule that has six weeks of school followed by a three-week break. Experts say that this schedule is at an advantage because students who are on this schedule are able to keep the knowledge from the previous school year because they only have three weeks in between grades.
Studies also show that this type of schedule is most efficient in areas where overcrowding is evident. Students are placed on multi-tracks allowing the buildings to be in constant use with new students. Although these are beneficial things the most important should be the students’ experience in school.
