Once again the Duval County School board has made me laugh…..  earlier this week it was about the teacher…  Now they are trying to make ends meet with next year’s budget, and are thinking about having a 4-day school week instead of  a 5-day.

If that ain’t the dumbest thing……

The idea was suggested by School Board Chairman W.C. Gentry during a budget workshop Tuesday. He said it potentially could save the district millions in savings in bus operations, utilities, custodial services and many other services.

School Board member Tommy Hazouri said it may not be a popular idea, but we need to look at all options…

State of Florida rules require students to be in school for enough hours to add up to 180 days, but don’t specify that they couldn’t go to school more hours each day and cut back on the number of days in the classroom.
