Yeah, I don't think cutting the number of school days will be doing any real good. America's school system is already below that of many of our most similar nations. I think the 5 day school week, is about fair. Kids need to be exposed to repetition in order to learn. 3 days a week? That gives us 4 days of nothing. And what about all the children out there who depend on school lunches? And, cutting teacher's pay is not a good choice. Teachers are so important for a good nation. They already get payed poorly. And it's up to them to teach our next generations.
There are plenty of budget cuts that should be made, the school system is not one of those things.

Yeah. Our school system is very flawed. Many schools have poor quality, mean/lazy teachers etc. This does need to change. I think that our we needs to do a lot better with the hiring of teachers. And it's not fair how schools in richer neighborhoods get to have a better education. It's unfair and something needs to be done.
I am also in high school, and all of my teachers are dedicated, kind, patient, and actually care about their jobs. So, that can go both ways. So, personal experiences should remain out of this.
There are of course, many flaws within our school system that need to change. But once again, cutting the amount of days/hours won't be helping any. If anything, it will be doing us harm. We just need a better structure, and more dedication.
