Summer Reading Requirements

All students attending Kenston High School planning to take an English class in the upcoming year must do summer reading. Sabrina said, “Summer reading is pointless, none of us read anyways and end up failing the test.” As a student at Kenston, I couldn’t agree more. It seems more and more students are asking why do we even have summer reading? For years, students have been required to read multiple books and it never happens. Students are very busy over summer with jobs, sports, internships, and vacations. Many students do not have time to read multiple books over such a short period of time. However, there are a few solutions! Either let students choose the book they get to read so they will be more interested in getting it done or extend summer. With these options students will actually get the summer reading done in the timely fashion we deserve.
