The typical number of days in school in the USA is 180 (much lower than most countries). Should we go to year round schools?
I come from a country where we believe give huge focus on academics , the kid is kept so busy with homework and assignments, projects that he barely get any time for any play, or fun during school days or during the academic year including all holidays . The kids are so busy that after their final exam that is in April ( here let me say our academic year ends in april and starts in june ) they are waiting for a relief from their hectic routine .To certain extent i feel that should be there , for him or her to relax and spend some time with his or her parents have a small vacation for family bounding , spend some time with their grand parents . Following are two approaches i have on having summer vacation . I feel summer break may be reduced to 1 month instead of 2 months as every kid should get some amount of time to be with himself , where he can be more creative , or engage themselves in some home activity where he will always learn something ,we should train our kids to learn always where they go .Probably Schools can take initiative in this and spend last 10 days with kids and ask them or give them ideas how they can make their summer productive . Or they can give them a small fun homework which they can do in vacations , which will prepare them for next year . the second approach is not very different just the homework part is removed from it . Every kid is different and some kids learn through schools and some learn on their own , they should get some time to figure out what they can do when they get bored during summer vacation and not be told by their parents or schools or teachers what they need to do . I feel they all will surely come up with some good ideas , which will be their own , and here parents will come in try to support them with their ideas ( just parents should be more alert what ideas they are coming up with ) . I read all the thoughts of different people mine may be to certain extent same , but here is what I feel ...

What book have you read that everyone should read and why?
These are few books Which made a very deep impact on my life . All time favorite of mine will be 1 The old man and the sea By Ernest Hemingway ....very simple story but very thoughtful message , you should be able to read between the lines. 2 Thinking fast and slow By Daniel Kahneman ...it tells us about how our brain works , very fascinating book , you can read it again again and every time you read it you will learn something new , will recommend to keep it in your home library . 3The picture of Dorian Grey By Oscar Wilde ....one of my second favorite ,Once you start reading you won't feel like keeping it down 4 The power of habit why we do what we do in life or business by Duhhig Charles .. I have not read few of the books suggested by you all will try to read them as soon as possible ..Love reading books hope you enjoy above books . Thanks
