Why did the world district's decide to go to the four day week? It all goes to save money. And when you're in a rural district, and you're really spread out. You can spend a good chunk of your budget on transportation because everybody's really spread out. And so initially it's always about saving money, and then they started noticing other benefits. Like, wow, you know, teachers are really attracted to having a three day weekend is my what recruiting in some of the rural areas. Sometimes it's hard to recruit teachers out there. I also saw one of the benefits in your story as fewer absences that would be a huge one. Yes. And that's another unexpected benefits that seventies districts initially going into it to save money are saying, wow, you know, what it really does help for the kids to get three day weekends. And you know, they're showing up in the same thing. What teachers, you know, they're noticing fewer teacher absences, we're speaking with tunnel. Hobbs of the Wall Street Journal now if you're shrinking the week to four days, do you add hours to the other days? Yes, that's what they're doing. They're add an hours, and you know, in some of these districts, they had already met the minimum required hours for instruction. So you know, they might add anywhere from fifteen minutes a day to ninety minutes today. It just depends on where they were at when they started when they when they were all five days, if they were already exceeding the hours did there is just basically add in time at the end of that day does each state decide. Its own hours and days, I know here in New Jersey kids have to be in school a certain number of days, not hours. Yes. And and exactly and that. And it's easier for states in Iraq. Each state does decide you know, how many hours kids are gonna be in school. And I noticed that the states that have the four days are those states that basically look at ours? They don't care. You know, how many days you're in school? They just want you. You know, you know, to be in school for the air for a thousand eighty hours or whatever. And there are some states that still do base it on how many days you're in school, and those are two states that it's a bit harder to go to four day on those states because they look at days instead of ours. The ones that look at ours is, you know, we don't care what your schedule is just make sure your kids, you know, have this many hours of instruction for the year. I would think that there would be some opposition to this plan from parents who have to scramble around to find care for their kid on that empty day. Yes. And that's always the big issue. Daycare daycare on that day. And what I found is a lot of these districts that go to four day, they typically have something in place, rather, they open up some of the schools on that Friday, and they offer like a discounted daycare and some of them actually offer free. Daycare or there's nonprofits that have like relatively cheap daycare, and the and the school district might provide meals to those nonprofit, in some cases, the school district actually, my open up on that Friday just to serve mills because there are some very poor communities where that might be the only male the child might be getting you know, during the during the school day period. So a daycare has been a really big issue. But you know, I went to Colorado where more than fifty percent of the district's use four day, and and talking to those parents there were a lot of them. I talk to that initially did not want it. But then they just they screw to love it. It's, you know, it's oh, you know. Let's take kind of a mini vacation if they want to, you know, get away for an extended weekend with the family and a lot of parents start out not liking it. But they ended up liking it and toenail, I guess the biggest question the twenty thousand dollar question. What kind of impact is? Learning. Do we know yet, you know? And I've looked at study after study from what I could see academics. Just based on these studies academics are not suffering under the four day. And there's actually school districts that say that they've noticed higher test scores because the kids just come back, well rested and ready to learn and they're missing fewer days. So they're in school more. That's how that's how they feel. But academics, we haven't really seen. Studies that show that kids do horrible. It just seems to be like, you know, academics. Really just don't seem to be suffering right now. According to these studies.
