Fron the San Francisco Chronicle's School year's early start burns parents:
The Board of Education is expected to approve the school district's calendar for the 2005-06 academic year tonight -- but not before a spirited debate among parents over when classes should begin.
This year, however, brings a new wrinkle -- the 20th anniversary of the Burning Man art festival in the wastelands of Nevada is scheduled for Aug. 29- Sept. 5. In an only-in-San Francisco argument, several parents are demanding that school start Sept. 6 so their children can attend the event.
I find that highly amusing. It's such a California thing to do. Really, it's such a San Francisco or Bay Area thing to do.
