Senate Bill 134, "The Family Summer Vacation Preservation Bill" is awaiting a hearing in the Senate Education Committee. This bill will mandate that Kentucky schools not start before the third full week in August.
The reasons that this bill is moving forward are abundantly clear. Putting our kids on "rolling ovens" i.e. school busses, allowing oppressive heat to run up district utility bills, and crippling Kentucky's tourist business to the tune of $115 million are the unconscionable effects of beginning school in early August.
