Lawmaker wants to give schools the option of starting before Labor Day

LANSING, MI (WTVB) - One state lawmaker wants to make changes to the Michigan law that keeps school districts from starting their academic year before Labor Day. Democratic State Representative Andy Schor from Lansing says he doesn't want to do away with the measure altogether, he just wants to give school districts the option of starting their school year earlier if they feel it’s necessary.

The post-Labor Day measure was originally passed with the thought in mind that extending the summer break would lead to a boost in tourism for the last weekend ahead of the start of the school year.
