Hot Topic: Unpaid Vacations

One of the great perks about being a teacher is the vacation time.  Many ESL and EFL teachers get between 2 weeks and 2 months off. The lucky ones get even more time off, like those in Korea who get 5 months.

However, the problem is that some schools are making these breaks unpaid vacations by creating contracts that only last 10 months. This way the school only pays the teacher for the time they're at school and not on holiday.

Some people like this since it guarantees them time off and gives them the chance to teach at a camp or two. Other people don't like this since they'd prefer to stay with one school and earn money. 

What do you think?
Is money more important to you than free time?  Do you prefer 10 or 12 month contracts?
