This year our school switched from block scheduling to period scheduling. We're proposing to take away period scheduling (7 periods a day) to block scheduling (4 periods a day) They may not seem really different, but its a huge difference to students.
We have to pack fifty pound of books all over gods creation. Now we have a few minnutes to pack these huge books from one building to another. We need the slack. Theres almost no time to even go to your locker in between classes. My locker isnt even near any of my classes. I only get to go to in once a day.
We still get the same load of homework that teachers would have given during a 4 block day. Its almost immpossible to get all of our homework done every night. Some nights, we have to start as soon as we get home and were still doing homework until we go to sleep.
