Something that I found interesting…
Colorado school district wants to switch to a 4-day school week instead of 5. Students would attend classes Tuesday-Friday and have Monday off. Each school day will be extended 40 minutes longer. The reason for this change would help teachers and staff better plan their lessons. It will help to recruit and retain quality teachers, minimize disruptions, and save money. This district will hear a reply sometime in June to determine if this schedule will be set in place. “There are 98 other districts in Colorado who have adopted the 4-day school week.” This switch seems popular and the majority of people are for it. On the other hand some parents say it is a hardship, since they still have to work a 5-day week and it will interfere with their work schedule. Although, families can pay 30 dollars per child for 12 hours of day care service on the Monday they have off.
I personally think this is a good idea, but also see where the parents are coming from. What do you guys think?
