Ah yes, school. The magical place where all students go to sit in different classrooms for eight endless hours a day, only to come home, study, and hopefully get eight hours of sleep.

Throughout the school day, students usually only have one thing on their minds: will we have homework tonight? The answer is a usually a dreaded yes followed by a discouraging sigh.

Switching would save money for the school by not running the buses, not needing substitutes, and lower utility costs for the one day everyone is not at school.
