Q: For how many hours a day do Amish children go to school? Do children go to school all year, or do they have a summer break like the Englisch do?
~ Dara Montgomery
A school day usually lasts for about 6½ hours. The Amish have the same number of school days as the “Englisch” do. The Amish children usually have a longer summer break though, because they don’t take long Christmas breaks and most of the time having school canceled because of snow is unheard of.
