Maryland Considers Requiring Employers To Give Parents Time Off For Conferences

Michele Molnar writes at the Education Week (3/21) "K-12 Parents and the Public" blog that the Maryland legislature is considering a bill to require "business owners to allow employees up to four hours of unpaid leave twice each semester to attend parent-teacher meetings about their children. Employers could require their employees to bring written proof of having attended the meetings. And employees would be required to provide at least three days' notice of their need to attend a parent-teacher meeting."
