Richmond County schools are not only closed today for the King holiday, but will be closed Tuesday as teachers take a furlough day.

Originally, Tuesday had been set aside as a professional development day, and students would have been off for that reason as well. In October, the school board agreed to allow teachers to instead take the day off to account for a furlough day.

Meanwhile, students in Columbia, Aiken, Burke, Edgefield, Lincolnton and McDuffie counties return to classes Tuesday, according to their online calendars.

Aiken County students were last off on a teacher furlough day on Friday.

It's just sad times all the way around when the budget cuts affect kid's education. All the time they get off as it is, now all the stupid furlough days on top of it.

I always knew those

I always knew those "professional development" days were a waste of time. Checking in or being furloughed, there will be no difference in school performance.
