Seven of our children are attending school during this holiday. That is right, they will be going for half a day to school instead of chilling out here at home, or visiting their relatives. (Here in Kenya we do three months on and one off.) Supposedly the practice has been banned in the country, but our school must have missed that memo. Actually it is banned in public schools, and our girls attend a private one. Someone did tell me the private schools are not allowed to have what they call "holiday tuition" either, but the Libertarian in me cannot bring myself to complain about a private school acting how it wants to act during the holidays.
At least they do not have to be in school till 8 am and get out around 1 pm.
