The school board is considering reorganizing the school week. They are suggesting that there be four school days rather than five. Each school day would then be two hours longer. Support your position for/against this issue.

I am against it because it would confuse people. It would also make children who have sports practices not get home till late in the night. If the children had homework they probably would not get it done. It would also interfere with peoples sleep patterns.
