In a desperate attempt to cut costs, some Illinois schools may only keep their doors open four days a week next year. The State House voted overwhelmingly to pass a bill that would allow local school districts to opt for the four-day week. The measure was carried by a vote of 81-21, and now heads to the Senate http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/03/23/illinois-schools-could-tu_n_509802.html This is total BS that it is even being proposed let alone passed and heading to the senate. Illinois is cutting deficits by short changing kids out of their education. Makes no sense... This is a disaster in the making... Parents are going to end up leaving their 7 year old 's home alone and go to work. What happened to all of the lottery proceeds?
