Both year-round and nine-month school programs run for 180 days. The main difference is how those 180 days are structured. The year-round school schedule is broken up with a number of short breaks. On the other hand, traditional school programs condense all breaks into one three-month summer vacation. Roughly 3,000 schools across the U.S. use a year-round schedule, most of them public schools. Supporters of year-long learning say the traditional summer vacation is simply too long and impairs kids' ability to learn. Opponents of year-round learning claim the schedule ruins kids' summers and creates an extra expense for school districts.
