    Four day school week

    About 100 schools have adopted a four day work week and others are considering doing the same to lower costs.

    The article I linked doesn't elaborate whether the hours per day are lengthened when a school goes with the four day work week.

    What do you think, should schools be looking at adopting the four day work week?

    Re: Four day school week

    I think the entire nation should go to a 4 day work/school week. A nation of three day weekends!

    Eliminate Mondays at work or Fridays?

    Fridays....then no one has to worry about Thursday night football games. Also HS football would have all day to prepare for Friday night lights.

    I'm a huge fan of 10 hour days. 4 x 10 would allow for more choices.


    I'm baaack! See my Hot Milk For Breakfast blog under Social Groups for more details

    If it was mandated nationally then no companies would have to worry about others having a competitive advantage. Internationally, many work less than us already and are staying afloat.

    I completely agree. For school, they can go all year round, but have 3 day weekends. For work, I would have no problem going in a little earlier, taking a shorter lunch and working a tad later.

    Did I mention I would love a 4 day work week?
