You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Al Campbell, curmudgeon, is writing about the Milwaukee Public Schools superintendent’s new infatuation with year-round schooling for every student. At his MyCommunityNOW blog (his regular blog), Campbell writes,

I began wondering about just what would happen with year-round education?

Would we start this at the kindergarten level and continue it through the senior year of high school. If so, the typical 18-year-old would be about a 15-year-old when he or she graduated. Are they then going to be able to go on to college or trade school or get a job as an adult?

If we start year-round school at the freshman year of high school, students would graduate about nine months earlier than is currently the case. This would still seem to carry many of the same issues with it that were identified above.
