Terry Ortega and Ginny Chung

School No Sweat

I don’t have any kids,” Ginny Chung told us, “but you best believe that my hypothetical children would be at every camp this year — no school, just camps.” Her co-creator of this year’s after-school guide, The Indy‘s calendar queen, Terry Ortega, has two and believes kids should have a choice. And do they think the high school start time of 8 a.m. is rational? “No,” they agreed. “Maybe they could come at 8:30 so their parents could go to work,” suggested Chung, with Ortega adding, “I know they’re not ready to learn ’til 9.”
