Shorter School Holidays.

Please make school holidays shorter, make the midsummer holiday no longer than 3 weeks and just 3 days at Easter and 1 week at Christmas. Hard up parents are having to have time off work that they cannot afford, also the children on long holidays are getting up to all sorts of mischief and quite often when they start back at school have forgotten all they learned before the holidays.
