School over the Grange Fair

State College has a school calendar problem every year, and this year they eased through it.

Well done, except while we all weren't looking they decided to start school on Tuesday of the Grange Fair, meaning that kids will go to school for three days of the fair.

I guess going to school during the fair is better than any other outcome, and the district can live with absences. I applaud the State High students and families who participate in fair activities. 

The fair is Centre County's event, whether the State College Area school district acknowledges it or not.
