4 Term year, Yeah Right!

Productive school work – at best

In New Zealand, we have a 4 term school year. Having said that, Seniors have just left, many have exams, some have achieved NZQA on internal assessments. All this means is that for some students, school is out for the year. I am fairly relaxed about this however given the rush to get through the curriculum lets not pretend we have 4 terms, we only have 3 at best. Given the number of breaks, trips etc I think the figure is more like 70% of the year. And given low productivity of many students 60% at best, the academic year is more like 42%. A full year of education – yeah right…
