I think the notion to get rid of holidays and weekends to save money is a atrocious idea. Holidays are essintial to students. The reason it is essintial to students is so that we can rest our brains and have fun during the year as to not become streesed.
Besides taking out holidays would be a huge mistake because Washington would have so many complaints that a riot might start. yes even though a riot may be extreme some people have religious holidays were they have to worship.
In conclusion it would be a bad idea to take out holidays.
