    9 month schools are crazy. Our school buildings and infrastructure are one of our biggest public expenses, but we leave them empty 1/4 of  the year (actually half the year, since most schools operate for 180 days).

    That is why many universities have been pushing summer and evening classes. It is much cheaper to offer classes at times when the classrooms are otherwise empty instead of building more classrooms.
