I believe there should only be school from Tuesday to Friday because with 5 days of school there is just too much stress. It really isn't that much if it is only 4 days. One day makes a big difference

School from Monday to Friday creates the best learning environment for students.

We have schools to prepare kids for the adult world, and in the adult world, a normal business week is 5 days--Monday through Friday.

If kids are given the crutch of an extra weekend day throughout their elementary and high school education, they will find themselves overwhelmed and unprepared for the adult world.

Additionally, the stress that students experience in school prepares them for what they will have to deal with for the rest of their lives, and it teaches them time management skills. The easing of stress that one less day of school would bring would be a major setback in students' training for the real world.

The world won't always give them a break, and so students need to learn how to properly manage their stress without needing to have their education cut short one day.

In summary:
1) 3 weekend days could become a reality for students, but it would ultimately make them unprepared for the harsh and unrelenting hours of week-day jobs that last 5 days, not 4.
2) Learning how to manage stress is an important part of your education, and taking a day out of a student's education takes away from valuable time management skills that are essential for the student to learn in order to succeed later in life.
