School is out for another year. The 180-day session ended for students and teachers recently. In spite of daily obstacles teachers and staff face, such as absenteeism, tardiness, apathy, interruptions of lessons due to assemblies, weather-related late starts and even state-mandated testing, school personnel wrapped up the 2012-13 school year when it was supposed to end.
However, that doesn’t mean all teachers wouldn’t like a special session some years to accommodate students who learn at a slower pace, missed a large amount of school or any number of reasons.
But, of course, that is never to be. Too bad the state Legislature can’t take a lesson from their former teachers and get their job done on time, too.
