Too many questions about year-round school

Published 5:17pm Friday, June 22, 2012

Dear Editor,

Year-round school seems like a good idea, but who is going to pay for it? Our tax system is over-burdened and unfair at best. Kids need supervision and training, but if the parents are working, who is going to provide this care?

It seems that there are more questions to this problem than there are answers.
