"Report: More American Fifth-Graders Taking Gap Year To Unwind Before Middle School"

"'We found that it's increasingly common for kids to put off enrolling in the sixth grade for a year and instead give themselves the freedom to focus all their energy on relaxation and personal growth,' the report read in part, adding that many 11-to-12-year-olds see the break as a time to step back and reflect on what they've learned about topics such as the California Gold Rush, decimal place values, and earthquakes, as well as to ponder what they want to get out of their middle school years."
