Florida Parents Fight To Take Back Summer

If parents get it their way, school will not be starting until after Labor Day. The parents are tired of schools taking away the summer months in which they had planned vacation time.

I never have figured out why schools had to back up the date on which school started. Every year recently, it has been earlier and earlier, almost to the very first of August. Florida also has Governor Jeb Bush in their corner.

Other states, whose legislators are weighing in on the bill to start school after Labor day, are Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, and Pennsylvania. North Carolina, Texas, Minnesota and Wisconsin passed similar measures in recent years.
