Mondays Off!

When heard about the Minnesota district that is switching to a four-day school week, I thought it sounded AWESOME... until I found out the students were getting Mondays off.  Fridays would've been SO much sweeter!  On the other hand, if my boss told me I could have Mondays off, I'd take it...

Anyway, after hearing details on the report, it seemed like a win for everybody.  The school day is an hour longer, granted.  But who wouldn't be willing to stay an extra hour every day so that you could have three-day weekends?  And if that could save the district a hundred-thousand bucks... it seems the only downside could be extra weekend homework.
