A lot of public schools are already back in session, and even more will go back in the next week or so. That’s too early, according to Kentucky State Senators Damon Thayer and Chris Girdler, who plan to file Senate Bill 129 very soon. That bill would require public schools to begin no earlier than the “first Monday closest to Aug. 26,” essentially pushing the starting date to September, close to Labor Day. If passed, the bill would go into effect a year from now.
Why bother with all that?
