How is effective is our traditional school system? In comparison to other countries, are we doing our best to educate the future leaders of our country? The fact of the matter is that the United States is testing well below average in the areas of math and science when it comes to being ranked globally. Is the system to blame or should the teachers be at fault? Whichever way you might feel, this research will explore the idea of year round schooling that is present in the United States, but not in every state. Could this be the change our school system needs?
