yes the title says everything. I am not against anybody or anything. I am just in favor of eliminating Columbus day holiday, make the kids keep studying and make our teachers keep working. If I have to guess I assume our educators want to start the calendar early, finish late and fill up with lots of holidays, Its good for the teachers but not good for the kids and families. Start the calendar after mid August please. used to be September but since some years ago the teachers union stumble their feet on the ground and now everybody has to "burn" by mid august. Everyone is used to start school mid August, just don't try to start early, lots of class will be empty if classes start by the 10th of August as the educators are proposing! and about Columbus day cut it out and that is fine.
