I wrote to our school superintendent asking why would our school schedule its mid term on Chinese New Year? Because I know many Chinese parents like to keep their kids home for the New Year’s Day. Quickly (same day) he replied ..
That’s a good question. Actually, the New York State Education Department schedules the exam days. I think you might want to write to an official in the State, to ask them the question. The State Education Department website is www.nysed.gov.
Oppps, I didnt do my homework. Thought the mid term is decided by each school district. Shame on me.
Hey, for those of you who care, you can write to voice your concern.
