Is a 4-day School Week Inevitable?

A Colorado school district recently made news for their recent conversion to a four-day week due to the need to cut back on budget costs. While it sounds like this is a new trend, more than 25 school districts in the United States have made the conversion over the past ten years. Few know that this truncated school day has a history that spans back to the 1970’s.

While some school districts have reported improvements that include improved test scores, a decrease in discipline issues and attendance improvements, some cons are ones that impact families, from a need for child care and a modification of holiday days off.

In your public school district, is a four-day school week inevitable?
