Q2. Read the following paragraph and answer the questions given at the end:
As summer comes near, many children are really happy to forget about school for a few months. However, they might be taking that goal too seriously. Studies have found that children typically forget between one and three months’ worth of school learning during the summer months. Spelling and math abilities suffer the most, while reading is not ‘really influenced by the time off. The most probable reason for this is that most children read at least occasionally outside of the classroom, whether in newspapers, magazines, books, or video game guides.
However, their math and spelling skills only get exercised in the school setting. There are other educational systems that provide vacations while still keeping students’ skills sharp. For example, in Japan students attend the class for seven weeks consecutively, followed by two weeks of vacation. This continues throughout the year. In Italy, students attend class six days per week, but finish at 1:30 PM each day, so that school does not dominate their life the way that it does in America, where students attend high school from 7:45 AM until 3:00 PM each weekday. In areas where there are not enough classrooms—in Afghanistan or Somalia, for example—older students attend classes in the morning while the younger kids go to school in the afternoon.
School administrators and educational specialists fear that the three-month summer vacation halts the continuity of learning. Just as students become accustomed to new math equations or new concepts in reading, writing, or critical thinking skills, they “shut down” for an extended period When they go back to school after the long, summer vacation, they take up to two months to return to their previous level of proficiency. And so the debate continues: whether to continue the status quo in terms of vacations or to seek changes based on the Los Angeles or the Japanese models.
a) Why are mostly the Math and spelling skills got affected in summer vacations?
b) How American school system is considered life-dominating?
c) Why the Japanese and Italian education systems are regarded as more efficient education systems?
d) What is the significance of summer vacations in our country?
e) How can proficiency in learning be increased during summer vacations?
