Should summer holidays be shorter?

Hands up if you're excited about the summer holidays? Of course you are! But would you change how long your summer break is?

Some of you get six weeks off, while other schools get four weeks off school over the summer - and this means more holidays at other times of the year.

At the moment most schools have to follow rules set by the Local Education Authority, and these rules decide how long term times are, and how many weeks holiday you get at different times of the year.

The government wants to change this - they want each school in England to choose their own holidays and term times, which would mean it would be up to your teachers and your parents to decide. You will still have to do the same number of school days in a year though.
