4 days a week and now you have to wear an ankle bracelet that they can shock the fuck out of you with when riding airplanes too.

I dont know about 4 days but i've always thought they should have a second shift school. Like from 2:30-8:30pm.

If its true, I guess we can blame it on the price of gas. It takes a lot to run all those buses.
Some jobs (state/county) in our area, are considering 4 day work weeks even to try and cut back costs in that area.

I have a elementary school within eyesight of my house and it cracks me up to see 20-30 parents sitting in their cars for 20 minutes idling waiting for their kids to get out and then see buses leaving with 10 kids on them. Or my biggest pet peave is these buses stop to drop off kids at every street. Like 100 yards between streets. They could probably pick up a decnt amount of MPG if they didnt stop every couple hundred feet.

If the schools are going to a 4-day work week, can we cut the teacher's salary by 20%?
I taught school for 5 years from 1994-1999 My starting pay was $18,400 my first year. After five years I made it up to $21,300. Every two weeks I brought home a paycheck for $550. I had $450 house payment, $300 car payment, $250 school loan payment. I still had car insurance and utilities. Oh yeah every know and then I would like to eat something. Now you want to cut the pay back for somone that's not making any money already?

Well I would figure the teachers unions will want to renegotiate the contracts because the way I'm hearing it is they will be 4 longer days/wk (2hrs longer per day).

There are schools around the country that only go 4 days. Typically they go an extra 2 hours a day though, so they make up the 5th day. Instead of 8:30 to 3:00 they go from 7:30 to 4:00.. So even only going 4 days, they still get in the same hours. IMO their pay shouldn't be cut if they're putting in the same hours.

For the bullshit teachers put up with, they should be paid better than they are. Kids are out of control these days.
