Four days a week

Schools in Georgia are considering staying open four days a week to cope with budget cuts. One school district did this last fall; more are considering it now. "Peach County officials have estimated they saved $313,000 in transportation and utilities costs by making the schedule change," according to a report by the Associated Press. 

It raises a host of questions:

2. How are working parents coping with the change?
3. Where are kids going on their day off?
4. Are they engaging in any distance-learning or project-based learning?
