Your 2 Cents: Should Students Go Back To School In Extreme Heat?

Posted: Updated:

Kelly Ogle, News 9

Despite it being perhaps the hottest week on record, I respect the Oklahoma City school district for trying to shake things up by instituting a continuous learning calendar.

Here's what you had to say, Ruth says: "My kids are in OKC public school and I am all for it. I agree with Kelly about giving credit to OKC for trying to make a dramatic change to improve our school. It's about time. "

Collin in Norman says "If the summer break didn't start until July 1st and ended on August 31st, the school district would save a lot of money just on electricity alone."

Eugene from Guthrie writes: "They should stay in class through May and most of June when it is cooler. They should be out at the swimming hole (pool) in August and start after Labor Day."

Sherry says: "I am glad OKC schools went to the continuous learning. My child has always regressed too much in the summer months."

But Logan in Medford points out: "In many rural communities these young people (high schoolers) play an integral part in the local economy. In return these young people draw a fair days wage and learn the value of a hard day's work."

Finally, Kerry says: "Why can't they push the start of school back a few weeks till September? Or, does that make too much sense for the upper bureaucracy?"
