    There’s a student acrostic poem that I have heard in the past for the word school; “Seven Crappy Hours of Our Lives.” It’s not a very appropriate saying, but I can comprehend the feelings of its creator. Imagine school felt long enough only to get another hour and a half added. I believe the way classes are distributed is reasonable, so how would adding another hour function? A longer school day would just mean complicated compromises and sacrifices would have to be made, students who dislike school would have another reason why, and time away from school would just be eaten out of teachers’ and students’ lives. It can be agreed that the county works hard to ensure our Fairfax County public schools are exceptional quality. With that in mind, why would the county have to work harder to make use of a pointless decision? It wouldn’t be an improvement as there is no benefit for the students. What will be done with that last hour and a half? As school is important and provides education for children and adolescents, breaks in the day are just as important, on the contrary. Longer “learning” does not equal better learning! Furthermore, whatever plans the county has for this additional school time will probably cost money, especially if it’s an academic program. Correspondingly, if school is being extended, that would mean more time at school for those who do extracurricular activities. The county would have to minimize the time these activities or even remove them, which would…

    A1: Postive Social Interaction: I have come to the conclusion that the Mr. Collet’s homework policy is the most rewarding and beneficial policy out of those listed.

Mr. Colett verbally explains his homework policy to all students at the beginning of the school year. Homework policies are…

    I’ve have been putting off writing this introduction for awhile now and tonight I had great intentions of sitting down to finally write it. Instead, I have found myself sucked into Ace of Cakes because I had no idea where to start. Procrastination is like a contagious disease that many students fall victim to.

    After I graduated high school a few years ago, I attended the University of Alabama for a short time before I decided that I did not want to be in school at the moment, and would rather work until I was ready to go back to school. Being in the small town of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, was a culture shock to me being that I was born and raised in the suburbs of Washington D.C., and then moved to Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, where I always had plenty of activities to choose from. Coming to Union College…
