School isn't supposed to start until after Labor Day.  There, I said it.  I understand the school system has to provide a certain number of actual 'teaching days' per school year, but do they have to start the new school year in the middle of the summer?

It seems every school year begins earlier and earlier. In addition to cutting into summer vacation, when you open schools at the beginning of August, you now have to cool all these facilites for a much longer period of time during the year. But because there has to be a minimum number of teaching days, and there are more breaks throughout the year, schools now have to open much sooner than they used to.
