    Many school systems across the country are facing strict budget cuts, and one option on the table is going to four-day school weeks to save money. Since we have a president who won't stop the spending, it looks like our school teachers will take the next hit, in income. Sad times.

    Why is it only the gubmint sector that complains about having too much work, too many customers and never ever enough capitalization?

    maybe the spending will go down after they are able to gracefully extricate themselves from bush's war of choice

    Stuck on shifting the blame to everyone and anyone, except those to whom it belongs.

    Forget the fact that most school funding and scheduling policy is set at the state and local level...Just blame it all on BOOOOOOOOSH!

    Hack.
