Kids in the MACCRAY School District in Minnesota are jumping for joy. The school district recently reduced their school week to four days, eliminating Monday and adding one hour of tutelage to each of the remaining days.
They say that they just can't make the budget work with the high price of filling the school buses with gas. By shortening the week they will also be saving money on school lunches, substitute teachers, and heating costs to the tune of $100,000 a year.
Some parents are torn about what to do about child care. Others are thrilled. By changing to a four day schedule the schools will not have to cut programs like music and art, which usually get the axe when it comes to budget cuts.
