00:00 - 00:05So that morning, one of the staff said, "Risitas, come over here. Look what we decided on to make
00:05 - 00:07MHHS better." I looked at his desk and saw papers
00:07 - 00:10with "no homework" or "no testing" with a "REJECTED" stamp.
00:11 - 00:16So I asked him, "How are we going to do that when all the good ideas are rejected?"
00:17 - 00:21He said, "We are simply going to remove extended lunch."
00:21 - 00:24It's true!
00:29 - 00:31And the new class won't worry
00:31 - 00:34as they never had it and the seniors would have left!
00:38 - 00:40*incoherent laughing*
00:41 - 00:47In the large campus, getting to the cafeteria itself takes 5 minutes, then we cram a class of 1,600 kids into a tiny little lunch
00:47 - 00:50line which takes 15 minutes to get lunch itself, and 5
00:50 - 00:56minutes to eat and hang out, and 5 more to get to class!
00:58 - 00:59We're looking at 15-20 minutes
00:59 - 01:01of break for all 7-8 hours of school!
01:04 - 01:06And class is still mandatory!
01:06 - 01:08The A+ kids will flock the teacher...
01:13 - 01:14...while the ACTUALLY failing
01:14 - 01:16kids will just sit until the bell rings!
01:16 - 01:20A's will be A's and F's will be F's
01:21 - 01:27While I took that in, he said, "We'll start taking attendances for flex!" Kids that use 1st flex to sleep are screwed!
01:35 - 01:36Logic of the century:
01:36 - 01:39"a high schooler with less break that a kindergartner"
01:41 - 01:44But in all seriousness, I did think, "How will the kids
01:44 - 01:47react?" I mean they are just 15-16 year olds. It's not like
01:47 - 01:49they use lunch hang out or something.
01:50 - 01:53They also won't petition or anything like that.
01:54 - 01:56After all that I asked,
01:56 - 01:58"What else do you have in mind?" He
01:58 - 02:02told me that we might need to randomly change students' schedules!
02:05 - 02:07And he told it with a straight face!
02:10 - 02:11Like the-
02:11 - 02:13Like the world was waiting for this!
02:15 - 02:17He ALSO told me might not even
02:17 - 02:20send emails telling them if they got a change!
02:21 - 02:28So they will manually go onto Aires of Flextime manager to check, but even then the servers will be down! They'll be completely lost!
02:29 - 02:30-No way!
02:30 - 02:32It is so!
02:36 - 02:39They'll need to re-memorize in less than a day or be lost!
02:40 - 02:42The tardy office will be packed!
02:50 - 02:55After processing all that, I told the staff member, "Wow, these are some nice ideas!"
02:56 - 02:58-How did he respond?
02:58 - 03:04He said, "I'm sure the teachers and students will love the changes! Less lunch time, random schedule changes,
03:04 - 03:09attendance for flex, and more mandatory studying!"
03:09 - 03:11"And 30 minutes will surely help EVERY kid!"
03:16 - 03:20"Especially the failing kids!"
03:23 - 03:26So I walked out of the office after that thinking,
03:31 - 03:36"Nice to see our school is headed in the right direction!"
