Let Summer Be Summer- Support Starting School after Labor Day

Comptroller Peter Franchot has kicked off a petition drive to collect 10,000 signatures of citizens who, like him, believe that Maryland public schools should begin after Labor Day. The petition will be delivered to members of the Maryland General Assembly during the next legislative session.

In addition to the increase of tens of millions in direct economic activity for Maryland, starting school after Labor Day will bolster small businesses that rely on seasonal workers, increase wages for young people and provide families with another week of quality time together. This can be accomplished in a way that puts no added pressure on teachers and still protects the state’s award-winning public school education system.

If you would like to see school start after Labor Day - please enter the following information to sign the petition.
