In the news story titled "Missouri House endorses four-day school week option" there are a lot of things I have seen that are missing.
In city areas, how will this effect future crime rates as these kids out of school realize that they have more time on their hands?
What about those kids who will be home alone?
How will this affect those with children in day care, now that they will have to pay for an extra day?
Where are all of these kids out of school going to go where they can stay out of trouble?
How will this effect the law enforcement state wide?
You might see a blessing in this measure, but I see a disaster being perpetrated at future taxpayers' expense. As a taxpayer, is that what you really want or deserve to have dumped upon you or your family and friends?
These are just some honest questions every citizen should be asking themselves. Contact all of your local school board representatives, local police chiefs, sheriff, county commissioners, city councilmen, church leadership, community leadership, governor, state senators and representatives and voice your views about this issue.
This would affect all citizens, not just students and their parents.
