Should There Be School This Summer?

Let's assume schools stay closed for 3 months. Should there be school made up this summer?

The poll is going with the assumption of a 3 month closure.
Obviously that's just a random guess, but let's go with that for now.

Good idea. We should send all the kids away to camp now (basically quarantine them away from all the adults) and then have school again when (if?) things ever get back to normal

For no summer school what happens? They just repeat the year next year?

I voted no summer school because I think my kids will gain much more from 2 months of camp than from 2 months of school.

I get that. I am just saying no summer sounds great but not if you have to repeat the year. Just trying to understand what that option means.

I was thinking about this over the last few days, and I think that there should definitely be school this summer. A lot of snob NY parents who want to go upstate will object to this and scream and shout. But tough luck.

Another thing to consider is that many parents will feel like they’ve had enough of being home with the kids all year and will want some reprieve.

Lastly, Yeshivos will need to provide schooling for our children this year or parents will stop paying or demand a refund for tuition for the months they were closed.

Voted 2 months of summer school, but I was always against giving off the whole summer. There never should have been more than 3 weeks of summer vacation.

They should try to cover (most of?) the required curriculum via distance learning while at home.

That might work in your community but not a real choice otherwise.
