All of the independent schools of New Atlantis historically have enjoyed the same spring break since before of the first Sith War. This has been done to facilitate family vacations as spring break is the big vacation time for New Atlanteans. The Alderaan Academy, one of the schools that receives the younglings from the Jedi Academy after τ Grade is moving its Spring Break date for the 2012-2013 academic year.
The Alderaan Academy is one of four schools that the Jedi Academy sends most of its younglings to. Dr. J. estimates that about 1/3 of the students from the Jedi Academy move on to the Alderaan Academy. About 1/2 go to the remaining 3 schools and 1/6th go to on to public school or elsewhere. Also of note, Mrs. Yoda works at the Alderaan Academy and half of Yoda’s children are in attendance there.
After careful consideration, the Jedi Academy has decided to continue to have its spring break at the same time as the other independent schools and not move its date to be in alignment with the Alderaan Academy.
The Jedi Academy is blessed to have a leader such as Yoda who puts the interests of the majority of his school’s families ahead of his own potential self interest.
The leadership in Washington could learn a lot from him.
