The Beginning Of The End For Four Day School Weeks?

Four day school weeks in Missouri may be a thing of the past. 10 years ago the General Assembly approved four day school weeks but now, a push is being made by some lawmakers to go back on that.

Those against the 4 day week claim its being used as a perk to hire and retain teachers, which was not the original purpose.

The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education released a report recently stating the 4 day weeks have almost no impact on education.
