Schools around the country are considering the four-day work week to deal with extreme budget cuts. With a shorter week, these schools can save thousands of dollars a year on busing costs and building utilities.
There has been a mixed reaction to this drastic change to the school schedule.

Some educators, educators and even students worry that the 4-day schedule will be too much for students and hurt overall achievement and learning in schools.
