For some students, holiday breaks arrive much sooner than Thanksgiving and Christmas. The two Jewish High Holy days, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, often fall on September. In areas with small Jewish populations, closing public schools on these days might seem unnecessary, but in areas with high Jewish populations, school calendars act as a direct reflection of equity with other religious groups. We observe major Christian holidays, it's only fair to extend that to Jews too. What do you think?
Should public schools close for Jewish holidays?
