Cancel school statewide in Ohio on Tuesday, January 13.

As you know, our beloved Ohio State Buckeyes defeated top ranked Alabama in the Sugar Bowl on New Year's Day.  This victory puts the Buckeyes in the National Championship against Oregon on Monday, January 12.  The game is scheduled to kick off at 8:30 pm.  In 2013, the average duration of a collegiate football game was 3:20.  This makes the expected ending time for the game around midnight.  Not to mention the extra commercials that are added because of the magnitude of the game and the trophy presentation after the Buckeyes undoubtedly come out victorious.  

Many Ohio students will watch this game no matter what.  Here's the issue; the game is on a school night.  Students will be too tired to learn the next day.  I am proposing a statewide school closing on Tuesday, January 13.  This will allow students to rest and be ready to engage in classroom activities on Wednesday, January 14.  This decision would be widely accepted throughout the state and would make the game much more enjoyable for students to watch.
