Jim Caldwell: Revisit year-round schedule

September 13, 2013 

Year-round reaction

Regarding the overwhelming support for the school bond issue in your Sept. 12 editorial “Bond or bust,” you have a short paragraph about the year-round calender. “Hasn’t really caught on with a lot of parents” is a pretty puny reason to dismiss the most efficient way to increase school capacity. Good rational leadership needs to be able to deal with loud emotional reactions.
