National Survey of 1,000 American Adults

Conducted August 26-27, 2019
By Rasmussen Reports


1* In many states, the school year now begins before Labor Day. Should the school year begin in August or should school begin after Labor Day?


2* Some people believe the school year should be extended to a 12-month calendar. This would mean the end of summer vacation for students. Do you favor or oppose extending the school year to a 12-month calendar?
