I think the biggest problem that Maryland or Montgomery County has today with schools is Truancy. Truancy is basically not showing up to school or not attending school for a good reason. I think truancy started in the early or towards the s. If truancy keeps going then the people that will be blamed to most for truant students would be the parents.
Last fall our school board decided to make it mandatory for students to attend school year-round. There were many issues to look at before making this decision. I feel that year round school can both benefit and hurt children. There are many issues that people are for and against for year round schooling.
The studies and the schools that have gone ahead and implemented the program have seen both good things and bad things in their findings. There will be both pros and cons for every issue, and some may see pros and cons differently. Year round schooling is the idea of attending school for an entire year, not all days, but continuously throughout the year. Year round schooling operates on a different schedule to incorporate the same amount of classroom time as a typical school schedule has.
