As you all know, we are currently in a pandemic we would've never seen happening ever, but it happened and we've had to adapt our lifestyles to fit into this new way of life. As a student of Somerset Academy, we've had to do online schooling. Last year, towards the end, we had a taste of how it would be, we had an 8 am to 11:45 am schedule that everyone thought was perfect and fair. We had enough time to learn and not lose focus, time after class to talk to our teachers, etc. It was a very rewarding school system, taking into consideration it was based on sitting in front of a screen for 3 hours and 45 minutes. This school year tho, the school decided to make the schedule 8 am to 3 pm with 10-minute breaks between classes and a 30-minute lunch break. As you could probably assume, sitting in front of a screen for 7 hours, 5 days a week is more than the recommended screen time for adults and children. Its an eye strain and it just makes losing focus inevitable. Not to mention, the same kids that take the bus because their parents work early won't have any help at home. Some older kids might need to take care and help their younger siblings with their school because of parent absence. He oes school peacefully for so long with this schedule? We just don't believe its fair and thats why we need to make a change.
