I believe they should not implement a four day work week because its less learning

C1. Less school days means more time to finish homework

This will give kids one extra day to finish their homework. Some say that this may reduce attention span, however additional time off of class would indeed lead to more homework thus more studying. This will lead to another day of tutoring or homework thus increasing performance in class.

C.2 Higher Quality Instruction

Study by Tulane University showed that under a four-day week, teachers were absent less often and faculty turnover was significantly reduced. This means better performance and overall improvement as a classroom as a whole. And everyone will be relaxed.

C.3 Less stress

This one is obvious. Less stress and more relaxing will indeed improve classroom performance and lead to the kids spending more time with their families. The kids may do what they like and achieving how they would like to feel. They will have less stress and improve classroom performance.
