Here are some observations about the advantages of home-day work in a 3-day model.
- Students have 67 days each year to iteratively improve time-management skills.
- Students have more time to read and write than they otherwise have, which perhaps means our students have read and written more than similar students.
- The school environment is not a totalizing force in the students’ lives. They and their parents have more options to create their own schedules, choose their extracurriculars, and join groups which are composed of people other than their peers in school.
There are some tradeoffs too. But these are some effects I have seen in the past five years.
