School Start Dates Up for Debate

 Wisconsin tourism-industry officials are voicing their opposition to a state proposal that, if enacted, would enable public school districts to start classes before September. 

Industry officials say operators of resorts, restaurants and recreational activities say the move could deprive them of school-age workers during the peak month of the tourism season.  Supporters, meanwhile, assert that starting classes early would give educators more flexibility to do what they feel is best for students.  Authorities say the measure still needs to be approved both by the governor and by a legislative committee before it can be put on the books.
