To the Editor,
Re: Long spring break isn’t about learning outcomes, Letters, Jan. 26.
So much chat in the newspaper every year about spring break for schools. Personally, I think both students and teachers need two weeks off at Easter; also adding it to the Easter weekend makes good sense. The loss (with two weeks) for hourly staff could surely be accommodated by reducing the incredibly long summer holiday by one week. It seems odd that all school boards in B.C. do not coincide with their policies, especially in this respect.
