Back to school: 4-day school weeks may improve elementary test scores, attendance
from Medical Daily
Kids learn to covet three-day weekends from the time they first enter grade school. Labor Day weekend and other random holidays provide the chance to escape school a day early and have more time for leisure activities. Now, a new study on students' reading and math scores finds a permanent four-day school week may actually be beneficial to education. Published in Education Finance and Policy, the study compared fourth and fifth-grade reading and math tests from the Colorado Student Assessment Program; students were both participating in four- and five-day school weeks.
