SIRâ€” I wish to applaud a technique that various school administrators use to keep students busy in the holidays. I am a librarian by profession.
I was particularly impressed by the way some school policies conditioned students to make the best out of the holidays. This prompted me to ask a few students why they were reading more than they used to.
Some pointed out the issue of having tests a day or so after they have reported. Others stressed have to do exams at the beginning of the term.
This technique works as one of the strongest remedies for idleness.
