It may sound like heaven on earth to youngsters who find it difficult to sit still five days a week, but education experts are weary of the current push to shorten the school week by a day.

Of the roughly 15,000-plus districts located in the U.S. more than 100 in at least 17 states presently use the four-day system. And, according to data collected from the Education Commission of the States, dozens of other districts are heavily considering making the switch in the next year.

A spokeswoman for the U.S. Department of Education wouldn’t comment on four-day weeks in specific districts, but did say that “generally, we are concerned about financial constraints leading to a reduction in learning time.” (Fox News)
