Even this challenging situation would ease
Our working style, including teaching, is slow and sometimes stagnant. In such a condition 5 day week will be a deteriorating factor for the schools.
Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.
Regarding the working people, how many are there who get Saturdays as holidays. In Govt and semi govt. services a second Saturday is accepted as a holiday. This is the case with bank employees too. Public sector or private sector companies also work on Saturdays. Perhaps, only exception is in the case of IT sector.
In short the working people are not free on Saturdays, but students are free. In order to overcome this idling of students on Saturdays, when parents are not at home, what is seen here is that the children are admitted in different institutions where weekly courses in different art forms (drawing, painting, dance, music, instrumental music, etc. Now Abacus training also has become attractive ).
If schools are also closed on every Saturday and if all the people in the house are having 2 days holidays, many of them will plan a trip to other places and in that process, the parents may not be able to take care of their children those two days also. They will start Friday night and reach back Monday morning and they will not have any time to review the progress of the children.
I feel productivity should come up. All IT industries and government offices should also work for 6 days a week.
