To the never-ending annoyance of various Democratic legislators, a post-Labor Day school start remains incredibly popular. We all know school calendars had gotten completely out of control. Take Anne Arundel County, for example. Prior to the executive order, they had 13 extra full days off in addition to the numerous state-mandated days off. Some of these days made sense, others like the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and the day for the teacher’s union conference in Ocean City, made zero sense. Instead of being aligned with the best interest of students, the calendars were aligned with the demands of the teacher’s union political leadership.
