Nothing gets done the last week of school anyway except maybe some finals.

Mugato: Nothing gets done the last week of school anyway except maybe some finals.


Came here to say that. No one learns shiat the last week of school. But if you make the second-to-last week the actual last week then they will learn stuff the last week. Yet that means the following year, the second-to-last week can't be the last week because everyone will expect the second-to-last week to be the last week. So you gotta go with the third-to-last week  The third year will be the fourth-to-last week and so forth and eventually the school year is only a week long, until the following year, when the week before the first week is the last week, which is the same as saying that school's out forever. You're welcome.

I don't go to high school, and neither does anybody I know.

So, obviously high school is a giant fakenews media hoax. It's just common sense.
 
2021-06-22 12:14:11 AM  
Principal Donnie Osmond would never do this.

Nice one, Subby.

School's been out in my neck of the woods for about three weeks now.

It's really just bullshiat because NYC schools are essentially obligated to feed and babysit the kids for x amount of days a year.

Next year, teachers will have to go in on a Monday for their last day of the year, since Juneteenth got added to the already absurd amount of days off, and threw the system out of whack. Not to mention that the city builds in additional days for snow, which are now technically eliminated, since it's now expected that snow days will be fully remote, but the extra days are still required, and not subtracted if there isn't any snow.

Long Island schools usually give the snow days back to everyone in the form of turning Memorial Day weekend into a 4-5 day weekend.

"I can't close the school a week early just to suit my vacation! ... Or can I?"

But isn't school out for summer?
 
2021-06-22 12:41:03 AM  
Given the lack of teaching in schools today, this may be a good thing. My son learned more at home, at the computer then he ever did in school. Maybe the kids will stop getting dumber and dumber.
 
2021-06-22 12:44:07 AM  
Do NYC schools always go this late or is it just due to remote learning cluster fark?

Schools in my area are usually out by the end of May unless we had an extra bad winter and over the 5 scheduled snow days.

Yep. School usually starts right after Labor Day and goes until almost the very end of June.

Catholic schools usually get out a week before public schools because public schools have a lot more days off for various religious holidays.

Ahh that explains it our schools are usually back in class for 2-3 weeks before labor day.

I thought that was a movie about stoners who're spies.  starring Seth Rogen and Paul Shore.  That's what I get for just reading the title.

maybe they could do that as a "Spies Like Us" remake.

It's a northeast thing. We go in around Labor Day and get out around Father's Day.

as long as American tax paying parents of students stay as uninvolved in their children's public school education we'll be lucky if people can speak in 75 years.

I think we had "field day" in the last week which was just races and games. Just have the kids login and play multi-player games against each other.

I would just tell Alice Cooper.  "We're not gonna take it, no we ain't gonna take it.  We ain't gonna take it anymore."

I mean, I think this was a squandered opportunity for a "No more Mr. Nice Guy" or "School's Out for Summer" headline, but you do you, submitter.

I thought the US had eradicated education back in the 70s after a decades long campaign.
