In this article, it's noted that students in other countries that attend year-round schools have higher math and science testing scores than those in the United States. Like stated in previous articles, there are not any studies that prove the benefits of year-round school, but it's argued that less information is forgotten. I don't detect any bias in this article, only because it elaborates the good and bad of both sides. The article isn't trying to state whether or not one is better than the other.
It's argued that year-round school is a better way to go, because kids tend to forget the information they learned in the previous school year over the summer. But a downfall of year-round learning is, it hasn't been proven that this education system improves academics, also summer activities like camp and jobs would suffer. Basically, what this article and the author are stating is that, like everything else, having year-round school has it's benefits and it's downfalls. I feel that this particular article has a good job of staying clear of bias, because it represents and explains both sides of the argument.
Year-round school benefits the academics of students, far better than those that attend the traditional school calendar. Students' end of year exams turn out better than those that attend traditional schools, and their overall performance is better. Also the operation of the schools are much more efficient. Students not only have better performance rates, teachers do too. I sense a bit of bias in this article because the author portrays traditional calendar schools as this new found evil that does no good for children.
Year round schooling is said to help with the disruption of learning a subject, when you have longer periods of time you attend school, the more opportunities you have to learn a subject continuously, without any breaks that distract you in between. School year-round is also supposed to help with over-crowding, kids will constantly be in and out of school, which will keep the building in use. The information used in this article seem to be unbiased, because it comes from teachers that experience year-round schooling, and what they actually think about they way their schools do things.
In this article, the pros and cons of year-round schooling are explained. The author uses statistics from the school year 2006-07, which show the academic benefits from students due to having school year-round. In the article, parents also weigh in on the topic, and all of them have conflicting view points on the subject. The information I have gotten from this article seems unbiased because the statistics that were used come from credible education associations.
