Pd. for by Family members of the candidate, Morn Hickman, Charlene, Brenda, and Lix Block Scheduling has been tried in different forms for a long time. It started in Canada in the sixties and was called semestering. It was mstly abandoned at that time because it had a negative impact on the teaching and learning of math. It was also called modular scheduling, 4 by 4, straight block, alternating block, split block, etc. Our own West Virginia State Department of Education, aware of the negatives attached to the title 'Block Scheduling" has coveniently referred to it as "Alternative Scheduling." By the 1980's, articles promoting Block Scheduling began to appear more frequently in educational journals. Proponents of block scheduling made a lot of money by selling books and cassette tapes and by charging for presentations to school systems across the country. In the 90's Canady and Rettig sold a book titled Block Scheduling: A Catalyst For Change in High Schools. Also, from the University of Minnesota, The Center for Applied Research and Educational Improvment (CAREI) vigorously promoted the case for block scheduling. But all things run a course. Parents are beginning to questio the value of block scheduling. The WV Legislature has had bills submitted to end the practice of Block Scheduling. Some school systems have gone off Block. Others are comtemplating the idea. I believe their motives are wrong. Block Scheduling costs more money and requires more teachers, but the reason they should quit Block Scheduling is because it is bad for academics - bad for kids. Teachers may not resist abandoning block if their jobs and security become tied to test scores. They know that good.test.scores run parallel.with more time on task. Also, teachers might not resist a return to a traditional scn eaule ff the L~.lpslature ehminated the double planning period. Ci .a~sses taught m a block scheduling scheme attempt to keep students on task for 90 minutes. What about the attention span of the mmnstreamed child, the attention deficit disordered child? Television producers strictly adhere to the 30 minute sitcom. Even with the best available photo-video equipment, gorgeous models, professional actors/actresses, and the best writers that money can afford, they realize that limited attention spans keep them inside the 30-minute zone. With block scheduling, consider when a child becomes ill. Consider when the teacher is ill. What about picture taking day? Because block dasses are taught for one semester, every loss of time is a double loss in the block scheduling formula. What happens to a child who moves into the neighborhood or out of the neighborhood during the school year? Despite teachers' love affair with th double planning period-despite principals' love for fewer class changes and fewer students in the hall-these arenot sufficient reasons to justify block scheduling. Block scheduling fails because it defies simple math. All forms of Block Scheduling are bad. Here is some simple math: Because every teacher is entitled to a duty-free planning period, in a 7 or 8 period day, one out of seven or eight teachers is not teaching. In a block sytem, one out of four teachers is not teaching. In a block system each course is 8100 minutes, or, 90 minutes times 5 days a week tor 18 weeks. In a traditional system, 50-minute periods times 5 days a week for 36 weeks equals 9000 minutes for each course, or ~m minutes more than the block system. Nine hundred divided by 5~is 18 class periods more for each subject. Looking another way, depending on whether it is a 7 or an 8 period day, a student could receive 126 instructional periods more than a block system can provide. This is significant because of the carry-over from class to class. Simply put, studying English helps with most other courses. Studying Math helps with Chemistry. Studying History, etc. In an alternating block system for a two-week period, a student has class every other day for ninety minutes or a total of 450 minutes. Contrasted with a 7 or 8 period system, a 50-minute class meeting daily for two weeks equals 500 minutes. The non-block benefits with fifty minutes more time on task every two weeks. I believe that a study will soon be made that will prove that the dramatic increase in the percentage of college students that are now required to take remediation classes without credit is parallel to the numbers of students entering college who have completed all four years of high school in a Block Schedule system. During this recent session of the legislature, there was talk about prohibiting students from taking remediation at the college level and requiring them to return to their high school until the deficiencies are made up. What would that do the credibility of the local high schools? Would parents and community demand that changes be made if that happened to their child? Imagine the blame game that would be played. Block scheduling is repugnant to musicians because it contradicts everything that they are about. Music teachers know about attention spans. They tell their students to practice slowly, practice a very few measures at a time, repeat these measures. Since they are asking for a high level of thinking it is best that their students practice for shorter time periods but more often. When the task is complicated, instead of practicing for an hour, practice for fifteen minutes four times a day. This is how band students learn. The lesson learned with band is that if this works with music it will work with other kowledge based ares as well. Most good music students have excellent GPAs. Block Sceduling makes it difficult for students to take sequential electives like band throughout high school. Band directors work with different age levels in the same group. Band directors are comfortable with huge numbers of students, often more than one hundred. In Band, the seniors and more experienced players will be assigned the difficult parts and younger developing musicians get a good idea of what will soon be expected of them. Pity the band whose older and most talented students are prevented from scheduling band. Band students volunteer themselves to scrutiny and exposure during rehearsals. They stay after school to practice. They march in bad weather. They sell things. Their parents work to support the programs. Parents like the structure and the supervision, and they like for their kids to be challenged. They like it when their kids are busy, that they don't have time for drugs and mischief. Parents enjoy feeling proud, and band students enjoy representing their parents, school, and community with pride. If band is offered, the best behaved and most scholarly will migrate to the band room. Band is a great reward for students when they do everything else well. In return for the services and support bands provide for schools and communties all duringthe year, we now have a system of scheduling statewide which makes it difficult for the best students to take band. Shame is on the school systems that punish good students in this manner. Here in Gilmer County, citizens running for the school board positions cannot, and should not, run on the status quo. The amount of mathematics and English remediation going on at colleges and universities throughout West Virginia ranges from the mid-20% level to over 60%. These are not all mentally challenged young people. The amount of remediatiou necessary in the college/university systems is at an appalling level. The negative educational effects of Block Scheduling and School-to-Work, along with the decimation of the arts programs, should be understood and addressed by all those who have aspirations for school board membership.
