OpEd; The 4 Period Day is Toast

Beyond the fact that the 4 period day was the most contested policy change in Evansville School district history, and beyone all the hype, it was just about a salary raise...nothing more. It resulted in decreased classroom instruction time, and of course increased teacher compensation. Period. The decreased classroom time has taken its toll. The day has come for a change. Maybe not a total change back to the 8 period day, but the "times they are a changin"

    There are also to many kids who can not sit through 90 minutes of class time. Some kids do not get the classes they want because with a block schedule there just is not enough time. I think they are finding out at the Junior High that the block schedule does not work academically. It's time for the experiment to come to an end.
