At the Sacred Heart all girls high school, we have four consecutive classes every day, an hour and 30 minutes each. In between classes we have 5 minutes to get the the next class before the bell rings. 5 minutes is not a lot of time. Going to the bathroom, getting our books, and sometimes walking all the way across the school to get to the next class all under 5 minutes. Could you do it? All of this, and we still have to try our best to stay focused in each class. 6 hours of class a day, and only 20 minutes of passing in total. The average attention span for a human has dropped to 20, 10, or even as little as 5 minutes. If we had 15 minutes in between each class instead of 5, we would be able to refocused for our next class, talk to our classmates for a minute, get everything together in order to stay organized, have time to go to the restroom, and still make it to class in time. Not only would this give us 15 minutes in between each class, it would make lunch 40 minutes instead of 20, and classes would be an hour and 20 minutes instead of an hour and 30. Yes, this would benefit the students, but the teachers as well. Teachers could have time to prepare their lesson plan for their next class, and also go to the restroom. This would greatly beneficial all around.
