I disagree for having a four day week because if you forget to eat breakfast, you might get really hungry. I also disagree because people in sports won’t get home until eight. Another reason why I disagree is because you have less time to rest when you get home. I also think that when you get out of school it will be dark when you get home.


If you do math you will live longer. :)
