OPINION: Not moving to block schedule is good

Throughout this year, Caney Creek High School has been having random block schedule days due to discussions about having everyday next year as a block schedule day. Reportedly, the school board is not going along with that decision and will keep the same regular schedule.
The good news with this is that even though there will be new schedules next year, students are still going to class like normal. 1st-7th period classes in a day would still happen.
First, new students could get easily confused and tired out because they don’t know where their classes are, and more specifically they don’t even know the school. Normally, when getting a regular schedule, 1-7 period classes are shown, students have to remember those classes and keep following it in order everyday. When it comes to block schedules, it’s a different schedule to follow everyday which can get confusing.
The time used for all these classes could also not be used properly. Because the periods would be lengthy, some students would have an issue not being able to concentrate. It’s important for them to be able to since the class is longer it means more work would come.
If students start coming to class late or don’t come to class at all could become a major problem. Block schedule means when classes take longer than usual, so it’s over an hour. It’s having almost 2 class periods in 1, so being absent could really start to affect students. Not having enough time to do all the missing work that they’ve missed on, and at times they can’t even make up for the times they weren’t there. If a student is always absent, the more work they need to do and the less free time they have.
For example, a student doesn’t go to school for a day and they come back the next day thinking about what they’ve missed. Because it’s a block schedule they’re not attending the class they missed, so it’s equivalent to missing about 3 class periods. It can get very stressful thinking about finishing all that work and students can get lazy.
Some students probably think that block schedule is better because they have more time to do work for a specific class but on the other hand, others may think it’s not because they may feel like it’s going too fast. The amount of work being thrown on them is so much and they probably don’t notice how quickly time has passed.
Block schedule probably won’t do much for everyone and isn’t going to help much. All it’s going to do is stress students out and wish that they don’t attend school. It’s longer, more work, and the stress could affect students’ daily life. It’s better to keep the rules the way it’s always been to prevent issues happening in the future.
