NTID Days : Are they necessary?

Julianne LaFon , Reporter

So far we have had four NTID days, and soon it will be five. Two of those five NTID days have been over our assigned breaks. Like our Thanksgiving break and soon to be Spring Break.

Why have we had so many NTID days? What is the reason we have them in the first place? We have had so many NTID days because of the teacher strike, and maybe one because of bad weather. We have them so we won’t have to make up the days at the end of the end of the year. But personally, I would rather just make up the days at the end of the year.

When I have a day off, I want to just be able to relax and not have to do all kinds of school work. The teachers assign quite a bit of work, not realizing that the students have other things to do. Yes I do understand that we have 10 extra days to finish these assignments, but we also have the work from that current day. Some students do not have a computer at home, or any source of technology to be able to work on these assignments at home. So, some students might depend on the laptops there at the school, and some could even be behind on current school work. So not only are people behind on school work, they are now behind on NTID assignments.

They are too much, they bring too much work and most students probably don’t even do it. So why do we have them? Why are they still around and why are we still pushed to do them? Knowing that half of us aren’t going to do the.
