While many schools are already back in session, most adults still think the school year shouldn’t start until after Labor Day.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 36% of American Adults believe the school year should begin in August, the way it has in recent years in many jurisdictions. But 53% disagree and say it shouldn’t start until after Labor Day. Eleven percent (11%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Those who have school-age children living with them are even more emphatic: 65% believe school shouldn’t begin until after the Labor Day weekend, compared to 50% of those without kids in the home.
People who don’t have kids are clueless about kids and their needs. No surprise.
Given how atrociously the public schools educate our children, giving them even more time to do it seems like nothing more than extending the child abuse.
