Long ago someone decided that we should have school in the winter but not in the summer so that the children could be home during the summer to help out on the farm.
We don’t have many farms here in the city. Wouldn’t it make more sense to keep our children home during the month of January so they can help with the shoveling, and possibly with the taxes and send them to school in July?
There were only two days in January when it was safe to go outside, and I think both were on weekends or non-school days. Lets stop the madness and have school in July and not in January.
