I actually know somebody that takes her kids places when they are supposed to be in school, and actually plans it so the day trips are on school days, because she "didn't have enough fun as a kid".
Her son (1st grade) missed so much school this year he was suspended TWICE. Her daughter (kindergarten) missed so much the teacher forgot her name (they don't suspend kindergateners for not showing up or she would have been to). She was out more often than her brother, at least 2 days a week for the entire school year.
Do you think she is teaching her kids that an education is not important?

The school year is 180 days long, out of 365 days/year. I NEVER UNDERSTOOD people like that, who think kids need additional breaks. they get TONS of breaks during the school year, MORE than necessary imo.
That woman is an idiot, and is teaching her kids to become sloths on society.
