Stand With Us | School Should Start After Labor Day

We have taken a lot of actions over the past five years, but I can’t think of another that has so much widespread, enthusiastic support across the state as Maryland’s return to the tradition of starting schools after Labor Day.

But after two years of it working very well, and after the 2018 election was completed, last year in 2019, special interests snuck a bill in, and legislators ignored the people again by reversing this common sense action with a misguided piece of legislation that has the potential to cause mass confusion this fall, and in future years, with the potential for 24 different start dates spread over several weeks.

We are introducing the Universal School Start Act of 2020 which will repeal the legislature’s misguided 2019 bill, and return our state to what the citizens actually want, and have been demanding for years: the return of the school start to after Labor Day.
