    "Kids would still have to complete the same number of hours per school year, so switching to four-day school weeks would mean longer school days or shorter summer vacations..."That means the heat is not on, the lights are not on, we don't have to worry about cleaning the building," Buckner said.

    And when you throw the one less day a week of school bus service, it means a savings of nearly $2 million a year."

    Who explains this information to these guys??? If you do longer days then yes you will eliminate a days bus service or cleaning, but not lights and heat since they still have to complete the same number of hours!!!

    If they extend the weeks into the summer break then they have gained nothing!!!

    And these are the folks in charge of education??? UGH!!!

    Obama wants year round schooling and this is their way to get it through as a budget necessity. The american public is truly stupid if they follow this line of so called logic....

    Go Forward With Courage

    When you are in doubt, be still, and wait;
    when doubt no longer exists for you, then go forward with courage.
    So long as mists envelop you, be still;
    be still until the sunlight pours through and dispels the mists
    -- as it surely will.
    Then act with courage.

    Yes, Illinois is a $#@!hole. I hate it here. I wish Chicago and everywhere within 50 miles of it would break of and form Chicagoland, the 51st state. Politicians don't bother going anywhere but Chicago because even if the rest of the state voted one way, it still can't out vote Chicago.
    "Anarchists oppose the State because it has its very being in such aggression, namely, the expropriation of private property through taxation, the coercive exclusion of other providers of defense service from its territory, and all of the other depredations and coercions that are built upon these twin foci of invasions of individual rights." -Murray Rothbard
