children’s happiness Length of vacation Academic competitiveness Teacher’s workload
In my opinion, children should study during their summer vacation. There are two points that support my opinion.
First, all children need to study hard to keep up with other classmates and remain competitive. If teachers do not give out any homework for the summer, then the children who have other means of studying such as going to cram schools will have a greater advantage.
Second, summer vacation is long enough for both fun activities and for homework. Teachers can make some of the homework activities interesting, with a few that go well typical summer activities. For example, students could be asked to write about certain kinds of plants, animals and birds that they can find while hiking in nature.
For these reasons, I believe all students should continue to study and keep their minds active during the weeks of summer.
