The debate over starting school in Md after Labor Day resumes…

Most in Maryland thought the issue of starting school after Labor Day was over after the Governor made it law. This morning we have learned that Democrats are bringing the issue back up.

State Senate lawmakers are debating in Annapolis on a bill to allow school districts to decide when schools start and end classes. Preliminary approval is expected today.

In 2016 Governor Larry Hogan issued an executive order requiring all public schools to begin school after Labor Day to help businesses and parents during the summer months. Yesterday Hogan stated that 73% of Marylander’s approved starting classes after the big end of summer holiday.
