Will You Sign the Petition for a Balanced Calendar?
The debate over the schedule for Cobb County schools comes around again with an online petition.
The group, which launched a website on the calendar issue last month, seeks a schedule with an early August start date and breaks in September and February. That was the calendar the Cobb Board of Education chose to eliminate last February.
That decision came after the school board ran an online survey about the calendar but did not follow its results, which favored the balanced calendar.
- 10:30 a.m., Jack Siegel: NO and not going to.
- 11:30 a.m., Robert Owens: ^^^ +1000.
- 11:30 a.m., Jack Siegel: thanks. I like how the Patch has become the mouthpiece for a small minority who think bully tactics and mob rule decide the fate of the majority.
- 11:40 a.m., Cobb Parents: Thanks, Northeast Cobb Patch!
