Bravo to Peter Dressner! He spoke the words that many of us were thinking (‘‘For school calendar better than MCPS’s, look elsewhere,” Sept. 13 commentary).

The school calendar needs an overhaul. More consideration should be given to the elements he cites. Certainly, we parents work around the inexplicable rhythm of the calendar but at great inconvenience.

I just hope the school board members are listening and will do something. If not, I hope the readers realize they are the ones with the power to change this and will vote for new school board representative who will listen.
