Re: [art_education] End of the school year blues
- Both of my brothers and one of my daughters live in Israel. There the summer
vacation is 5 weeks long and they get out of school at 1 PM also. The
afternoons are filled with clubs and activities---after the homework is done
, of course.

- I am in Malta -
School starts 4th week of September until end of June. We get two weeks off
for Christmas and Easter and two mid term breaks (first and second term
Lessons start any time between 8 and 8.30 in the morning and finish between
2 and 3.30 depending on the particular school.
Lots of holidays but they are well justified :) (of course). Come June it
becomes just too hot to do anything except go to the beach. In fact June is
always half days... I guess it would change if someone were to find enough
money to install airconditions in each and every classroom but it has been
like this for as long as I can remember.
I am living and teaching in England at the moment. The school day runs from about 9-3:15 for primary and secondary schools. Art however, in primary schools is generally taught by the classroom teacher and is difficult to fit into the timetable due to the national curriculum. Art in secondary schools is mandatory for years 7-9 but becomes an elective later and is timetabled depending on the school's layout. The school year finishes at the end of July and begins again in September yet there are a lot of national holidays and longer breaks for things like Christmas and Easter in between.
On this topic however, I am actually trained in America with a bachelor of science in art education (kindergarten-12th grade) yet am finishing my student teaching in England and living here permanently. I am finding it difficult to find a job because of my different type of degree and qualification (although it is fully or legally accepted in England). Does anyone have any advice how to adapt my resume, cover letter, and applications to better suit the job market over here? Thanks a lot!

Most school districts in the midwest states of the US
start school in August or early September and end in
late May or June. There is a movement for year-round
schools, however. These schools run for 9 weeks and
have 3 weeks off in between throughout the year.
