Officials encroach on summer vacation

June 7 2005

Just started summer vacation, just tired of a long school year Shkolyary relaxed, cared for the summer sun, and here, as the bombshell news - summer vacation will be cut. On summer vacation plans to cut off the latest, most warm and rich part - the final two weeks of August.

At a government meeting in Moscow Mayor Luzhkov said the following: "Three months of the summer so blab young creature that teachers have for a long time to gather children into a unified whole."

For clarity, the capital's mayor gave the example of European countries, where the three-month vacation at all.

I recall that on the longest school holidays already attempted, but in 2001 the number has not passed. Then Education Minister Vladimir Filippov calmed people's indignation, saying that within two or three years, the situation with a vacation will not change. The Minister explained that some schools may be changes to the schedule vacations on their own initiative. To go experiment a few dozen schools. The results of the experiment is not reported ....

However, not all so sad - a week removed from summer vacation will spill over into the fall and spring break. Thus, they will take not one, but two weeks. Motivated by the fact that "one week of children do not have enough to restore health, building and recreation," - said Luzhkov, adding "if the children will be occupied during extended vacations in the spring and fall sports, tourism, then no parent would be against this act .

However, according to the head of the Moscow Department of Education Love Kezinoy, parents still speak strongly against it, according to her unhappy mostly parents, who can not afford to send their children on holiday three times a year. "

Among the options "use" busy time, it was very long and the separation of the third quarter.

Well, summer vacation will be reduced, two weeks to spill over into the fall and spring break "as in the west" .... But it is worth considering the fact that they have there the climate is warmer, and we have a northern country. Often during spring break in their studies because of the weather bow on the street do not want to show - not to mention the fall ....

According to doctors, these changes can not be applied without serious research. Director of the Institute of Developmental Physiology, RW, MM Armless said: "It is impossible without serious research to change anything in the existing academic pace. And do not accidentally put students to walk the three summer months. And they have, strictly speaking, nedobirayut laid, rest, only two of them. June, usually goes away on exams or on the so-called practice - the guys wash their desks in a classroom or work on school grounds.

But only if the child is capable of a long holiday to truly recover. And after such a vacation takes a while for it to be drawn into a study. In babies (1 - 5 th grade) adjustment period takes 4 - 6 weeks. In high school it takes 2 - 3 weeks. And by November, the guys just "raskochegarivayutsya." And then again holidays. The result is that the guys did not really pouchatsya and rest. And even the two-week vacation can be compared with the five-minute break. Therefore, vacations must be done as long as possible. Let the they will be less.

Director of the school № 1252 them. Cervantes (specialization - Spanish) Marina G. Polisario considers that "... long before the heavy third quarter of boys need to rest longer, stock up on energy. But to shorten the summer holidays, when the sun is shining, it is very difficult to learn and want to sunbathe and swim, and not sit desk, probably not quite reasonableI think summer vacation is still better spring.
