This is emblematic of leftist thinking.
What do you do if you have a problem with kids being chronically truant on Fridays?
You simply eliminate school days on Friday!! Easy Peasy.
Now look for the kids to cut Mondays. They have the imbeciles on the run. (By the way, MSN endorses this for everyone!)
SCHOOL’S OUT FOREVER! Or maybe just Fridays. It might be TGIT for a city in Alaska that’s considering shortening its school week to Monday through Thursday beginning in 2013. Yes, that means three-day weekends all year long. The decision is driven partly by how many school kids are skipping Fridays anyway, and the fact that dividing the same hours of class time among fewer days actually gives kids more time with teachers. The four-day week would be given a trial two-year period if the proposal passes, and we suggest that if the trial period works we, as a nation, make it the new norm for everybody: schoolchildren, office workers, everybody.
