Letter: Late start for schools or not?

After reading the article on the start of next school year, I am befuddled at some of the reasons for it to start late.

Lee Westrum said it would mean shorter breaks and be "very tight" for teachers and students. Believe it or not, some businesses need that weekend to make it through the lean time of winter.

The economy does not need any more sticks in the spokes, or some people may find some very tight times ahead and shorter breaks being permanent. Then with people out of work they could spend more time micromanaging school districts.
