Bring back our days
This petition had 152 supporters
As you may or may not know, last year Harding Fine Arts Academy released their students at 3:41. These extra 11 minutes gave us 9 more fridays. These 4 day weeks help relieve student and teacher tensions, stress, and gave more time to study.
Here is an article published by Cindy Long-http://neatoday.org/2016/01/14/four-day-school-week-pro-con/
"Mark Anderson, assistant professor in the Montana State University Department of Agricultural Economics and Economics and Mary Beth Walker, professor and dean with the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies at Georgia State University, examined elementary school test score data on the Colorado Student Assessment Program (CSAP) from 2001-2010 across the state’s rural districts, fifteen of which operated on a four-day week.The researchers found the percent of students scoring either proficient or with advanced proficiency in reading went up at schools on a four-day schedule and were higher than their peers in school districts who remained on the five-day schedule."
I urge you to sign this petition to support getting these fridays off, and the extra 11 minutes. Although we will not get every friday off, we wish to atleast have 5 more fridays off then we are getting. Thank you for your time!
