We Should Have Four Day School Weeks

School is tiring, and that’s a fact. Not only for students, but for teachers too. So why not take off one day in the school week.

 

I can say confidently that for many teens school is a high stressor. Getting one day off a week would help students catch up with school work, and their mental health. 

 

The weekend is supposed to be a time that students get to hang out with friends and family, but unfortunately most of the time is spent stressing about upcoming assignments and making sure their grades are good.

 

Not only would this be beneficial for students, but also for teachers. We can talk all day long about how much stress school is for students at such a young age, but the people who are experiencing even more stress are teachers.

 

The day off would help teachers catch up on lesson planning and updating grades. Not to mention the day off would really help with relaxing, which everyone deserves but doesn’t always get.
