A task force in Maryland is recommending that schools delay the start of the school year until after Labor Day. Many districts in the state begin classes a week before Labor Day. The state's comptroller, Peter Franchot, said the delay could result in as much as $7.7 million in additional tax revenue and $74.3 million in new economic activity. However, some educators object to the proposal, saying it could affect planning for snow days, professional development and more.
