Most Marylanders Want to “Let Summer Be Summer”

I wonder if these results have something to do with our winter fatigue. In any case, 72 percent of Marylanders favor waiting to start the school year until after Labor Day, the initiative Comptroller Peter Franchot calls “Let Summer Be Summer,” according to a Goucher College poll.

Franchot will be testifying today on the bill that would move the start of school. The Baltimore Sun reports that school administrators don’t like it, but it seems virtually everybody else does. That includes Gov. Larry Hogan, former Gov. Martin O’Malley, as well as interests from Ocean City and Deep Creek Lake.

Now if only we could get a bill to let winter be summer, too.
