Shorter break doesn’t mean more learning

Does a shorter summer break mean more learning in school?

On one side in the US you have the no home work crowd.  A new movie is pushing this view point Race to Nowhere

And on the other side you have the our school year is too short in the US.

A good article that is a good read -  Shorter break doesn’t mean more learning- The Jerusalem Post

My view is a mixture of both.  HW is helpful, but good teaching is also needed.  As well as less time spent on discipline in the classroom.  I would like to know more about why teaching is so effective in Finland.
