    This makes so much sense! Education currently spends nearly $100 on high school textbooks that could be consolidated and easily updated for students. Every part of this proposal provides evidence as to why we should seriously consider this excellent and innovative idea.

    Don't forget that Article IX, Section 1 of the Idaho Constitution mandates that the state provide a thorough public education to its citizens.

    I taught under a four-day week from 2002 - 2007 in Orofino and left there because I wanted a better education for my children who were still in school. Of course, it's great as an employee to have a three-day weekend every week, however, I felt the students I was teaching at the high school and my own children were suffering for several reasons. 1. You cannot cover the same amount of curriculum under a four-day week. Our classes were longer by 30 minutes a day only. That didn't replace the full day of school we were missing. 2. Young children only have so much of an attention span for the day. My elementary age students were burned out after a school day that ran from 8 - 4. 3. Students needed to review more each Monday after being out of class for three days. 4. Although some students had jobs or worked on that fifth day of the week, most students didn't. This left many young people home alone or unsupervised because parents were working. 5. There was no time to get into the curriculum with more critical thinking activities because the schedule didn't allow for that. When many education systems around the world are actually adding more schooling for children, why are we even considering cutting ours?
