Teachers in DeKalb County favor a "balanced" school calendar with a shorter summer break, while most parents favor keeping a traditional school calendar, according to a report in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Those are the results from a recent online survey that polled 7,000 respondents in the district. The poll revealed mixed results: half of the respondents favored the alternative calendar and half preferred the traditional calendar.
The results were clearer when respondents were broken into groups. A clear majority of the 1,500 teachers polled wanted the balanced calendar, according to the report.
Parents in DeKalb will be receiving paper surveys in front of a scheduled Monday vote by the school board on which calendar to adopt.
