4 day school week

UM!  NO!  I just read an article in the local paper that our school board is actually considering this.  ARE THEY INSANE?

The plan is to have the school day be 10 hours and have the children go 4 days per week rather than 5.

I cannot believe they even consider it.  While I think the 7 hour day they have now is fine although I wouldn't complain if it was a tad longer, there's  no way children can learn effectively with a 10 hour day.  Of course, there are a ton of other issues to consider, aside from if the children can handle it.

They better decide this is a no - go!
