Four-Day School Week in Kansas

Monday mornings are always the worst, but students in Kansas City won't have to worry about the Monday Blues any more.

This week the city council voted 4-2 to approve a new four-day school week, which will run Tuesday through Friday, beginning this fall.

The students in the city will still need to log the requisite number of classroom hours, and therefore the school days will be extended by forty-five minutes. That seems like a small price to pay for three-day weekends!
