Scheduling and learning study

Study: Young students gain little from modified schedules
Children in year-round kindergarten and first-grade may not learn more than students following traditional calendars, according to a new study by a researcher at Ohio State University, presented at a recent American Sociological Association conference. The study compared test scores of public and private elementary students with those of students attending schools with year-round schedules, meaning they spread vacations over the entire year without adding more school days.
