In 2009, President Obama stated that he felt students should stay in school longer, bringing up yet again the debate around year round education. Advocates of year-round education claim numerous benefits. For one thing, they believe that less information will be lost over a long summer break. Further, increased opportunities for remediation and easier times scheduling vacations can result from year-round education systems. On the other hands, opponents highlight that no study has conclusively proved that year-round education is better. In addition, some programs such as band and sports can be hurt by this system. Therefore, more studies need to be completed to better determine the overall effect of such a system.
