The Gov & Comptroller are Wrong: Schools Should Not Start After Labor Day

On August 31, the Governor stood with the Comptroller and announced that beginning with the 2017-2018 school year, no school would be able to start prior to Labor Day, and all schools must end by June 15. I disagree strongly with this action, and believe it is moving away from where we should be going - year-round school. Not only will this action not help our state – it will hurt our most vulnerable families and create additional barriers to success for many working parents.
