Re: 4 day school week districts
The public school calendar is being tied to the theme parks and vacation entities. They screamed many years ago when some school districts were starting earlier in August. The theme parks want schools to start mid to late August. The politicians in Austin listened and passed laws restricting school start times. Public school is not about kids or learning. It's all about politics and selling testing materials and technology which benefits politicians who profit from their business interests in them.
