Brigid Schulte advocates a shorter summer vacation be scheduled in children's school calendar ("Kids Love Year-Round School," Oct. 25). This enriches her children's learning while alleviating the conflicts of day care for her busy work schedule.
Why do people who have "found their answer" feel that all people should be forced to share the same values?
Summer vacation was always the favorite school term and recess a favorite class in my family. We don't lack in academics or enrichment, but value creative unstructured activity.
Ms. Schulte, please don't advocate for all children; seek out whatever activities you value to involve your children in and allow other parents to do the same. And allow children the time for the "Huck Finn" summer if that is their value.
