AND IN MY humble opinion, the answer is unequivocally “no”.
As much as I support teachers, and have agreed with their fight to regain the ability to negotiate class size and composition, and respect all they do, I cannot buy into their arguments regarding a two-week spring break.
Trustees of School District 73 voted last Monday to go back to a one-week break. They cited concerns from parents as part of the reason for the change. It was a narrow vote, suggesting trustees themselves weren’t sure if the two-week break were good or bad.
