This is a bit of a tangent but I guess I see so many people complaining about aspects of school `my child is not at a high enough reading level' `the teacher has too many sick days' `they are doing too much fun stuff not enough learning' type thing but then have the attitude that missing school for holidays does not matter. I don't think you can have it both ways and I do feel that some people have a pretty poor attitude when it comes to the importance of schooling and this rubs off on their children.

I wouldnt hesitate doing it while in early school years and then not around exam time for high school.
We always went on camping/fishing holidays as children. They were so much fun and we experienced so much. My brother got pulled out for a 3 week driving holiday up to the Cape with my dad and his friends. His teacher encouraged it as he'd learn experiences a classroom could not give him.
Niece and nephew went on a 2 month overseas holiday last year (yr 6 & 7) with encouragement from teachers.
Is it just other parents that are against it? Because it seems majority of teachers are all for it.

I am taking kiddo out of school next year(year 3 for him) for 1.5wks so we can go on a cruise. Once we work out dates, i am gonna have to put my work leave form in as i want a lot longer off work. I dont see the harm as he doesnt have time off school(maybe last day of term to leave for camping)

Education is important...and I believe there are several ways for a child to get an education...however, I send my child to school for that uniformed structure where they learn about consistency, they learn how to read and write etc....if one of my kids got a teacher who wasn't capable of doing their job properly then yes I would complain...it's why I'm sending my child to school.
