I'm sending this one to every senator and representative I can. Dear members of the State of Alabama legislature:  You will never see my vaction dollars again, until you repeal this intrusive, ridiculous law.  Destin is not much further and the sand is just as white and warm.   My fellow residents of North Alabama, in particular the Huntsville/ Madison area, have a considerable amount of disposable income to spend.  We are angry. We resent your intrusion.  We will vacation elsewhere.   How dare you think that you have the right to override our independent school districts?  Hubris!   And to impose it onto schools for the 2012-2013 school year, when calendars have been approved since January... I'm dumbfounded.  Vacations have been planned, teachers have set lesson plans, and parents now have to scrabble to find child care for two weeks at the ends of summer.  Which, by the way, will use up any money that they may have wanted use to take a vacation.   Enjoy your vacation, XXXXXXX XXXXXXXX Parent Engineer Business owner Tax payer Voter


  1. Not to mention that they have not presented any evidence (or even consideration) that this move improves children's education. Isn't that the point of governance over school districts by the state? Really, it's the only point. I hope private schools choose to opt out of this crapola.

  2. You go girl! You nailed it! Send to the papers across the state.
