Uniform Post-Labor Day Start for Michigan Schools
The Detroit Free Press reports that Gov. Granholm signed a bill yesterday to require all public schools in the state to start after Labor Day. Polls show that a majority of voters prefer an extra week of summer vacation in August with their kids. Starting next school year, schools must open after Labor Day unless they have union contracts specifying an earlier start (new contracts will be required to have the new start date). The law doesn't affect private schools, universities or year-round public schools, but it does apply to charter schools.
