Generally, people who are happy with the policy simply lets it stand and do not send emails or participate in bogus polls. Thus, I would be led to believe of the 650,000 people who call Cobb home, 630,000 reject the liberal agenda of the far left to start year round schools - also known as balanced calendar.

Holly, it is ok to admit that year round schools (balanced calendar) is a very liberal view. Regarding Bush, most true conservatives would agree he was the best friend left wingers ever had.
Make sure you compare apples to apples when you look at education globally.
Please live in the real world; the delivery of education is a very political process and always will be. I always find it funny when my liberal friends try to claim the use of tax dollars is not or should not be a political issue. Any time you use public money or create public policy which gives power to the National Govt., it is liberal. The opposite is true of conservatives.

It really never ceases to amaze me at the liberals who try to bully the rest of the community. I am not terribly surprised that Lynnda Crowder Eagle is simply echoing the words of liberal groups and leaders. She was allowed to never did answer any questions on first campaign. (I am willing this will dramatically, should she choose to run again. As for Banks, this man needs to step down and let a younger parent take his position. His only apparent goal is stir the pot. His claims of being a conservative does not match his votes or actions.
Thank goodness, they will be gone before end of the year. People are lining up knee deep to take both of these board members on in a real election and not a manipulated survey they or their friends put out.

After looking at the the Democrat platforms for the last 25 years, I have concluded it is a liberal/Democrat and their best friend (NEA) agenda. Year round school (also known as the balanced calendar), is not an increase in the number of instructional days. Instead, it is just the federal government and local liberals trying to insist we accept their ideas on summer.
Per your statement about lower rates for vacation times, Now I believe a liberal has finally pointed to the great big elephant in the room. It really is not about student achievement after all, just a desire to make everyone follow a schedule you happen to find more convenient for your family. My family like to take long summer trips, allow our kids go to summer camps, and spend a couple of weeks with their grandparents. As a result, we are very much against year round schools.
Yes it is liberal to believe the federal government should have more rights to tell you how to spend your time. The year round schools or balanced calendars have been used in states which are primary by big government advocates (liberals)
