Isru Chag Labor Day

He'atid announced they are starting the 2012 school year on Tuesday, September 4th, the day after Labor Day and will have school until June 21st.  I never really understood why schools waited a day or two AFTER Labor Day to start, which inconvenienced most parents.  I hear other schools are also planning on adding days to the school year.  I think finally they are getting the message that they have to be sensitive to the schedules of working families if they want us to be able to make enough to pay full tuition!  We can't ask teachers to make any less money than they are making now (they have to eat!) but I think it is fair to ask them to start putting in a few more hours.  It's still a pretty convenient job in terms of the hours and the days off.
