Your Turn: Should School Start Earlier?

When should school start? August or September?

In Wrentham, students went back to school Tuesday, while in Mansfield, it's still vacation time.

Mansfield grades one-12 won't be in school until Sept. 5.Considering that this year is expected to have more snow than last year, do you think it's a good idea to risk such snowstorms as we had in 2011 and the possibility of school ending before the allotted time due to contract restraints?

Do you think Mansfield should be school already? Or should school start in September like it has traditionally?

I am completely comfortable with the start of the academic school year beginning the first week of September whether or not it coincides with Labor day. I do think their are too many early releases (10 again this year) and I wouldn't be adverse to 1 vacation in March with the kids getting out of school at the beginning of June.
