Word on the Street

The Covington News - - The second front -

We asked:

What do you think of short­en­ing the school week?

You said:

“How is cut­ting a day out of the school day go­ing to help the bud­get in the long run? Ed­u­ca­tion is one of the most im­por­tant parts of so­ci­ety and they want to cut it down? I don’t agree with that. We need ed­u­ca­tion to cre­ate a fu­ture of tax pay­ing, in­come gross­ing in­di­vid­u­als.” — Re­becca Mayo

“That is a long time for a lit­tle child to stay in school. But the up­side of it would be that I re­ally think that it would give our kids more ed­u­ca­tion to keep up with for the rest of the week.” — Su­san and Chuck Ozburn

“I re­ally like the idea of a four day week. I think it would be a good way to save money with­out di­min­ish­ing the value of ed­u­ca­tion here in Newton County.” — Leah Carlisle

Word on the Street is com­piled by Nic Wal­ter and runs on Fri­days.
