Ebenezer Weast slashes Christmas break to 4 days
Yet another instance of the superintendent's family-hostile policies.
December 26-29: A measly four days for Christmas vacation. Christmas and Thanksgiving are the most important national holidays for family reunions - yet Superintendent Weast has seen fit to cut the Christmas break to the bone.
A latter-day Ebenezer Scrooge with callous disregard for families, Weast has made it as difficult as possible for families to travel to enjoy Christmas, giving a pathetic four days off from school.
So as not to offend the oh-so-sensitive people who find Christmas offensive, MCPS has re-named the vacation "Winter break."
