We use science when it benefits us, and ignore it when it makes things complicated. We should not have a 2.5-3 month vacation in the middle of the year. Data shows us that the time off is detrimental to most students, and certainly to poor students who lack access to enriching activities in the summer. But we don’t let this data get in our way; you can’t pry summer from our cold dead hands.
