    If we as a Nation want to compete, we need to get these lazy-ass kids in the REAL world. It is a horrible idea to allow them 3 months with no schooling. It might have been a better idea 30 years ago when there where more good parents, but todays parents generally dont do nearly enough positive things for children within those 3 months anymore. They shove video games and ice cream in their fat faces. Their 3 months off is MUCH more destructive than helpful. They forget a LOT within those 3 months on top of it all. No wonder why we rank sooooooooooooooooo low in the world!

    Because we all know that the system can never be wrong nor at fault... You should read some of John Gatto's books about education in the US. It's very enlightening.

    Do you know why the US falls behind countries like Japan, South Korea and Taiwan in basic math and science? Because in these countries, students are in school 11 months a year from 7:30 to 5:00 and then after school, it is very common for students to spend another three hours plus weekends in cram/tutorial schools (more if they are in Middle 3 or High School 3 preparing for entrance exams). Do you REALLY want to replicate this in the U.S. in the effort to catch up? I hope NOT!

    People really need to learn how to construct better polls. Editorial comments included with yes or no choices pretty much guarantee that no answer will be quite what most people want to choose.
