School Holiday ... Yay it's Some Jayanti !!!

This petition had 13 supporters

Why are schools closed on the name of Jayanti ? Every second day in India, schools are closed on the name of Jayanti or some or the other holiday. What do kids have to do with so many holidays especially Jayanti and fasting ones, that they need to stay at home? If offices are not closed then why school? Have you ever analysed how many days a child goes to school ? Parents pay 365 days of bus fees, school fees, tution fees, activity class fees, meals so on and so forth and in return they get Summer holidays of two months, Winter holiday of one month, 100 days off due to Saturday and Sunday other than holi, Diwali, dussherra, eid, and then you have the below holiday list. It's simply insane. If we want our children to excel they should understand that work is worship and education is the base. Please let's change few things in our education system. Right from school timings, school holidays, and school syllabus. Let's give our children a healthy education system. Office begins at 9:30 even 10 but kids go to school at 7. Why ? Why study things in which child is least interested. Mugging history dates. Why ? Why can't be festivals celebrated in school and why not dedicate the Jayanti day to the particular person by teaching kids in school about him and his contribution to the society. Look at the below holiday list of 2017 and decide how beneficial and need for hour is this petition.
