Personally a really big fan of this type of system.
Children do not forget everything during the summer have have to spend the first several weeks back at school reviewing what was forgotten over the summer. Not to mention that breaks throughout the year would allow for families to vacation at various times throughout the year, maybe at some discounts that this thread is really about.
