Poll: Do you think school holidays should be shorter?

The back to school countdown is on.

THE SUMMER HOLIDAYS are coming to an end for children and teenagers across the country, with schools opening their doors next week.

But do you think the holidays are too long? Some parents in the UK think the long break leaves teenagers bored and listless – and in need of mental stimulation.

So today we’re asking, do you think school holidays should be shorter?
