I was just reviewing Red Clay’s 2016-17 calendar and have to admit, the school year should start after Labor Day.
The notion, let the kids get summer out of their system and get settled in before Labor Day has merit. However, it doesn’t make that much of a difference.
OMG! Delaware economy is down in the dumps and Hocker has a valid point re: the summer positive financial impact on the Delaware’s economy. As for kids, for many summer might be the only time the get to work!
