Once again, kids are going back to school in Ohio. And once again, a state lawmaker is saying that school shouldn’t be starting in the middle of August.
When the first bell of the 2016-17 school year rang, there were certainly plenty of parents who were relieved at the end of summer break.
But perhaps just as many were upset. Sen. Gayle Manning says she’s been hearing from the latter group – parents who are angry that school is starting when the weather is still hot or when they want to do a family trip together.
