My school switched to four days to cut spending. One day less of class means one day less of heating the school, fueling buses, feeding students and paying certain staff members. For a school desperate for funding, cutting out a day of the week is a reasonable option.
Even though students only go four days a week teacher will still work a full five days to where they are fully devoted to complete their professional development, grading and lesson planning. Four day school weeks are sometimes a financial strain to low income families with younger children. Even though some families struggle others are very welcoming of having an extra day where there child can work for the family business a come
If more schools have went to a 4 day school week many schools wouldn’t have financial debt and wouldn’t have to cut things from school’s. California is the 23rd most ranked school in debt in the world so a 4 day week could have schools all across California get out of debt. I predict that school’s would really benefit from 4 day school week and so could the students. I also predict that everyone would be happier to go to school because they are getting out a day early. A 5 day school week has been proven that more kids would get lower grades and in trouble more
With a four-day school week helping schools and students, the only other people to help is the parents. The four-day school week would lead to lengthened school days, giving the regular-hour, eight to five, working parents the ability to cancel out after school care. One parent even said it herself “‘I approve of the four-day week’” (Johnston). “Sixty-seven percent of parents stated that their child liked the new schedule, 60 percent of parents thought their child was doing well, and 82 percent of students stated that they liked the calendar’” (Yarbrough and
The 4 day school week began as a way for school districts to cut costs. In many school districts running a bus is a considerable expense, however cutting school to 4 days would lead to significant savings. Moreover, having all school facilities open for only 4 days in a week can make a huge difference when it comes to savings in many aspects, including custodial pay, transportation, teacher pay, utility bills, food costs and other miscellaneous expenses. Equally important, cutting a school week down will decrease the amount of money students will have to pay for meals. Over 56% of students in America eats the food provided, which means on average a parent is paying $414 a year for meals.
The Culpeper school board is considering removing the five day school week, replacing it with a four day school week and adding 10 hours to the school day instead of the current amount of 8 hours in the belief it might be more beneficial than the system we have currently. I believe a four day school week would be less beneficial than a five day school week because students will have less time at home and this will affect all Culpeper County School employees. There will be overall less time at home during the school week. Getting rid of these extra hours will disrupt the lives of every Culpeper family with a Culpeper County Schools student. If you add one hour onto the beginning and end of the school day, secondary students will be out of
Some students are struggling academically with this kind of schedule.I believe that students do not have to go to school for 8 hours a day to be have succeeded. Other’s think we should not have an 6 hour school day because kids would have more time to do after school things like coloring, playing, talking laughing, and many other things and also the school district will save money the percentage of students that day 89 percent should not have an 6 hour school day and 11 percent say yes.Most people have their opinions about different things address more they would do less work but have badder grades. Teachers would have less shifts and more me time all to myself. If there were an 8 hour school day kids would most likely to get better grades than to fail even more classes to not succeed. But if we had a shorter school day that would not happen there would be less tests exams less notes homework, and studying no classes.
As what we have observed, not all courses and year levels are covered with this implementation. Many teachers and education experts wanted to impose back the five day school week scheme. This gives rise to many students especially those higher year level students that are having a hard time on managing their time doing school works complaining that the four day school week scheme should still be implemented. Although some teachers and education experts agree on a five day school week scheme, we believe that the four day school week scheme is still beneficial for Sillimanians because it reduces traffic and the cost for transportation and utility, it gives
There is always a group of students after graduation or even before graduation who cannot see their selves continuing school for another four years. Especially when they have alternative options some students in high school would spend most of their day at high school and after lunch, they spend their day at a trade school. During their time at a trade school, they get a further learning on skills that high schools do not provide. Skills in plumbing, automotive, cosmetology, fashion design, heating and cooling, and many more different jobs. Most parents stress that important it's getting into college after high school because degrees look good on your résumé, and it can get you further in your career.
The reason for this is people fail to realize that high school is way different than college. It is very important for a student to have an open mind for the drastic change their about to encounter in the next four years of their lives. They are both different levels of education that are expanding a student’s knowledge to fulfill their career path for their dream job. Although, there are both similar to one another that involve teaching students to learn both have many differences between each other, I prefer college more than high school based on my experiences.
