Expect More Students in Colorado to Have 4-Day School Week
We have heard the debate about a 4-day work and school week for the past few years. Since the pandemic, a few companies have switched to the 4-day work week, which has been successful.
Studies Have Been Conducted
Companies across the globe participated in the largest study recorded regarding the 4-day work week. The program was so successful that workers refused to go back to a normal 9-5 routine.
These workers worked a few extra hours a day and still worked the same amount of hours.
The worker's productivity increased dramatically, and the study suggests that since the workers were happier, they put more effort into their jobs.
What About School?
If I were a kid and heard about the option for a 4-day school week, I would jump for joy. It turns out many students in Colorado have made that jump for joy that I dreamed of when I was a kid.
4-day school weeks are a growing trend in Colorado. Every year, more and more school districts change their schedules. KDVR announced that 105 school districts in Colorado have switched to the 4-day work week, and they expect more schools to adopt the schedule soon.
Why Do Schools Do This?
They believe that most school districts switch to the 4-day school week because it saves each district a lot of money. Many schools have shut down recently. This would ease the financial burden for a lot of our schools.
Colorado has the 2nd most schools with a 4-day school week.
