A few examples of alternative schedules are extended learning time, late starts, year round schools, and four days a week. Alternative schedules can be very effective in some ways, and help with scheduling conflicts. On the other hand though, they can have some problems that most schools don’t have. I think some alternative schedules would work much better than others. For example, four days a week schedules I don’t think would work better because it’s less time spent learning. There are benefits, but I don’t think they outweigh the cons. On the other hand, year round school can have many benefits like students not forgetting stuff over the summer. Again, there are cons, but I think in this case, benefits outweigh the cons.
