I couldn’t agree more with Peter Dresser, who has a child in middle school and another in high school (‘‘For school calendar better than MCPS’s, look elsewhere,” Sept. 13 commentary).
I, too, have been in a rage for the past several years regarding the school system’s calendar. I comment to parents, co-workers, neighbors, even my children. The Montgomery County Public Schools’ calendar is flatly ‘‘a nightmare!”
Mr. Dresser, you could not have written your point more articulately. I know that there are thousands of other parents who feel the same way we do. I have spoken with dozens of them myself.
