Rep. Pamela Hornberger, R-Chesterfield Twp.; audio on school start legislation

Categories: Audio,Hornberger Audio

Rep. Hornberger talks about her HB 5157, which would eliminate the current restriction on starting the school year before Labor Day.  Rep. Hornberger’s plan would allow for a pre-Labor Day start of the school year, with no school on any Monday or Friday during August.  A former teacher, Rep. Hornberger says more than 100 Michigan schools received a waiver to start before Labor Day this current school year and believes her measure would provide for more local control and eliminate what she says is a problematic scenario of having students away from the classroom for almost three months.
