My Two Cents: Don’t Expect MCPS To Change School Start Times

This week, Montgomery County Public Schools Superintendent Joshua Starr took a step back from his own proposal to move high school start times 50 minutes later, from 7:25 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. with school ending at 3 p.m. instead of 2:10 p.m.
The optimists among us are holding firm to the notion that MCPS will change, and before you know it, rational minds will prevail. Later start times will happen and finally — finally — county teens can get a good night’s sleep.
Of course, I see the world differently. I see no changes coming. Here’s a cautionary tale about MCPS and change.

  1. This is another of those perennial issues that reside in MC. It comes around periodically like Halley's Comet.
