BC Teachers' Federation President Susan Lambert says she's worried about school districts in the province being able to set their own school calendars.
Lambert says it's difficult for families to organize family time if everyone is on a different calendar. She says family time is something kids need in addition to school time.
"I don't think everything needs to be flowing from a market place calendar. I think that the whole notion of children being part of families is something we should honour as well."
With regulations now in place, boards of education can set their own calendars starting with the 2013-2014 year.
