It’s been a common schedule of schools within the past few years in the state of Oklahoma: four-day school weeks.
Four-day weeks have been a solution to one of Oklahoma’s school problems: low funding. Having these shorter weeks have benefited students and the school budgets greatly. Schools have saved over $150,000 by going on the four-day week schedule, and the absences of students with the four-day week schedule have decreased dramatically. Of the 513 school districts in Oklahoma, over 100 of them have followed in removing either Fridays or Mondays off the school calendar.
Recently, a state senator proposed a bill that would ban the four-day weeks, and force students to no longer be on the schooling schedule they have adjusted to. In response to this proposed bill,  we had all 375 students at Inola High School participate in a poll and tell us whether they think we should go back to five-day weeks, or continue with the four day a weeks. That poll resulted in 90% of students saying they would rather stay with the four day weeks instead of returning to a five day schedule.
