    Should kids be given a personal day off from school every now and then? I am not too sure it if they should because they already have sick days lol. Some think they should. Do any of you guys here who have children let your children have a personal day off school?

    They already do have a special day. It's called "Graduation Day".
    A personal day from school is like a personal day at work. If you don't work, you don't get paid. If you don't go to school, you miss out on learning something, and in today's work climate, our children need every single advantage they can get.

    Nope. American children have one of the shortest school years in the world. Only exception i would make is 1/2 days. there pointless IMO. I always skipped school when i had one.

    These kids don't need no more personal days off from school...My daughter gets personal days off on the weekend...Barely learn anything school anyways...
    School is not that challenging enough academically to where a kid needs time off...They get summer vacation which is 2 and half to 3 months off...winter break 2 weeks off, spring break 1 week off...holidays...snow days....and weekends....etc.
    I get so pissed when my daughter comes to me and says she has all these days off all the time....She needs more days of school if you ask me...If I could I'd stick her in a boarding school where she has to live there.
