Keep kids in school, move rodeo to weekend
TUCSON -- TUSD students went to school yesterday on President's Day, but get two days off at the end of the week for a rodeo.
Nothing against the rodeo, but kids should be in school Thursday and Friday.
Could it be that TUSD administrators still shut down schools for rodeo two days a year primarily to save money?
Shutting down schools for two days for the rodeo reduces education time and causes child care problems for working families.
Why not have the rodeo parade and main rodeo events on the weekend?
