The Pros And Cons Of Four-Day School Week – An Attempt To Back Up The Tumbling Finances

 

Many schools in the United States changed the school week to a four-day week; most also extended each school day by an hour or more. A four-day week is basically an arrangement where a school is attended by students for the course of four days rather than five days. There is no specific day some schools do not have classes on Friday while others prefer to give the students Monday off.

Sometimes, the school week is trimmed to cut down its costs and expenses or for flexible working hours. Other than that, switching to a four-day school week could give children more time for homework and families responsibilities and has the potential to lead to a higher quality education and learning environment.

A study by Tulane University revealed that under a four-day week, teachers were absent less often and faculty turnover was significantly reduced. And students actually behaved better, they were attentive and showed better attitudes under the new system.

PROS OF THE FOUR-DAY SCHOOL WEEK

  1. Cut Down Expenses

Most school districts have changed the school week to a four-day week; to save money on operating costs, including running school buses and paying bus drivers. Schools find that a shortened school week can save up to 2 percent of overall costs, and they don’t have to pay overtime salaries for their supporting staff. While some of the schools who also followed four-day week have reported even higher savings.

  1. Students Performance

People had said that students under four-day school week program will suffer academically. But an early study has revealed that students are responding well, and their academic performance has improved. In another study, the results showed that students in Colorado school District accomplished better grades in a four-day school week rather than five day week.

Students do not skip multiple days, when they know there is a three day weekend coming every week, therefore, attendance increases as well as student’s efficiency.

  1. Sense of Responsibility

A four-day school week is an excellent way to enhance the sense of taking responsibility for your own actions in a child. Although, it is the dream of every student to get an additional day off from school every week, but the four-day school week does not mean that students get a day off from completing homework assignments and preparation for upcoming exams.

More often students will have the ability to study or catch up on homework, especially if they are behind on their work. The extra day off helps the students to figure out the way of learning and allows them to adopt any information absorption method, which suits them best.

  1. Self-Confidence of Students and Teachers

If students and teachers both get the opportunity to get rest and time to figure out their work, then they can cooperate with each other in a better way. A four day school week is better than five days school week because stress levels are less, and it eases the burden of teachers and students both.

Four-day school week decreases the workload of teachers, and it enables the students to receive an improved education without changing the schools. The confidence of students has also improved; they are now able to set their schedule.
