Late school start not a good idea

The later school starting is not the best idea in my opinion. I understand how many parents have urged our board of education for a later school starting for years, but I strongly disagree with the notion.

While at first glance, the idea may seem good, but when you think of it from a student’s perspective the idea of a shorter Thanksgiving break is taboo. Students need a full week to get their mind off of the stressors of school. But who wouldn’t want an extra week added to summer? Most everyone who already have made future plans over Thanksgiving.
