AUSTIN, TX – A Texas lawmaker has filed a bill to reduce the school week to four days as a way to help cut education costs.
House Bill 1326 was filed by Representative Ryan Guillen (D), Rio Grande City Guillen. He says school districts would save on fuel and utility costs.
Critics say saving money should not always come at the expense of education.
Guillen proposes instead of the current five, that Texas ISDs would go to a four day a week schedule with an extra house of instruction added each day.
