Lunch Time Research Paper

Our topic was to look in our school handbook and see what rules we wanted to change, or find the flaws in them. Our instructor asked us to find a reason why we wanted to change them or why we found a problem in that rule. I decided to change how long I believe we should have lunch. In our school handbook our allotted time for lunch is a half an hour. My reasoning for choosing this is simply because students do not have enough time to eat.

What is the rule I am proposing to change? Lunch time is the main thing that I think should be extended out so the students have time to eat.

They have to rush themselves to the front of the restaurant, order quickly and hope your food comes out within minutes of ordering. Hamilton High School is just a few miles south of our school and they have a 40 minute lunch, with a shortened nutrition break. Most of the schools in Montana start earlier and school also gets out early too! Somehow they find a way to have a longer lunch than we do and I think that needs to change!

On some days students are deciding to go into Hamilton for lunch because they have more options. It takes ten to fifteen minutes for a round trip, and on top of that you have to order your food which can take another five minutes or

    Everyday at 11:34, the students race to lunch. They wait in long lines, eat “fake” food, and then have to scarf it all down in 35 minutes. Although they have a decent amount of time, the lunch system could be greatly improved. If the students had more time, more options, and better food, lunchtime would be a much more exciting time of the day. First, students need more time to eat their lunch. I personally believe that 35 minutes is not enough time to eat, especially when you have to wait in a…
