The implementation of a four-day school week is a growing trend in rural school districts across the country. Currently, 88 districts in Colorado, 43 in Idaho, 30 in Oregon, and nearly half of the districts in Montana have adopted this non-traditional school schedule, according to the Brookings Institute. Former Secretary of Education Paul Reville told Boston Public Radio Wednesday his concerns about the increasing popularity of the four-day school week.
