CJ Looking forward to my first Southeastern Okla*homa State University Homecoming, as a new Assistant Professor.
"Could three-day weekends help school districts cut costs without undermining student learning? A new study suggests it’s possible.
Researchers from Georgia State University and Montana State University found that elementary school students who spent an extra day out of the classroom had higher test scores in math than those with standard academic schedules.
Published in the journal Education, Finance, and Policy, the study compared the academic performance of children who attended traditional, five-day schools with kids who had four-day school weeks. Using fourth-grade reading and fifth-grade math test scores from the Colorado Student Assessment Program (CSAP), researchers found that the four-day week did not affect reading outcomes—but that it did have a “statistically significant impact” on mathematics."
