schools are experimenting with innovative ways to adapt, including switching to a four-day school week. As many as 100 school districts have implemented a four-day week, especially in Colorado where over one-third of their school districts have adopted this schedule. While you probably aren 't likely to hear students complain about having a three-day weekend every weekend, this potentially offers a lot of advantages: removing a day means spending 20 percent less on things like busing, food, and utilities--in theory. Reports have found actual savings to end up being somewhat paltry, ranging from 0.4 to 2.5 percent per year. Now on, Some critics are concerned that students may not remember the lessons from last week because of the longer weekend and negatively impact students attention during classes.

The positive aspect of the data outlined in this report is the acknowledgement for the need for more support, research, and funding for the up and coming learner to enter into the workforce.

According to Kopp, the added prestige for TFA would “counteract teaching’s image as a ‘soft’ and downwardly mobile career”. Under this premise, Teach for America would begin operating as a 501(c)(3) in 1989.
