The number of Arkansas school districts operating on a four-day school week is rapidly increasing. Lincoln made the move to four days this school year, and other districts in Northwest Arkansas — including Huntsville, Greenland and Decatur — plan to do it next year.

We talk to Lincoln Superintendent Mary Ann Spears and Decatur Superintendent Steven Watkins about the four-day school week in this edition of the Know the News podcast.
