Schoolchildren will have shortened summer holidays

In Britain, secondary school students will have shortened summer vacation period - to five weeks instead of six, but in return it was decided to add a week to the fall vacation. It is assumed that this will allow parents to spend less money for rest, since in autumn travel is cheaper than in the high season. Several educational institutions across the country have already switched to a five-week summer vacation, including the Severn-Vale school in Quedgeley (Gloucestershire). According to the director of the school, Richard Johnson, shortening the summer vacation will help working parents, as it will reduce the period during which it is necessary to provide childcare. Sandra Eschenford, the mother of one of the schoolgirls, generally agrees with the administration's arguments, but says that if children study in different schools, where the duration of the holidays is different, it is not very comfortable.
