Cape May - I agree with the OC spouter that our kids' low test scores have nothing to do with being on vacation in the summer. It is lack of quality educational time that they receive during the school year. I'm sure lots of teachers try, but our touchy-feely system won't let them flunk kids or hold failing kids back. Permissive parents, too much teacher union control, liberal school boards and lack of student pride and ambition sure don't help. We can't blame being off for summer at all.
