Another Oklahoma school district is making a controversial move in the wake of more than $100-million in budget cuts this year. Newcastle schools will be going to 4-days a week.

Newcastle districts joined more than 50 other smaller schools in the state by making the switch. But not every parent is happy about it. Many say the move is more about teachers than taxpayers and they're worried it will hurt students in the long run.
