Rural schools around the country are going to 4-day school weeks to save money on bus fuel and heating costs, according to an ABC News article, 3-Day Weekend: Schools Out for Gas Prices.
I can't imagine this is doing good things for the budgets of working parents, who must now find childcare for Fridays.
More evidence that our schools need better funding.
I'll try to find some success stories again soon.
