Overcrowding Continued

Overcrowding is forcing kids to stay in school 9 or 10 periods a day. They aren't being given more classes, just more holes in their programs. Some have two lunch periods and internship periods. Here is a picture of a bunch of kids studying for an exam outside the math office. There is no room for them to sit inside and no chairs available for them to bring outside.

How long is the school day if they have 9 or ten periods!!!?

We have a 12 period day. First period starts at 7:15 and 12th ends at 5:10. School is thinking of adding another period.

Inconceivable--and unforgiveable!

We have the same problem, with students having programs that look like Swiss cheese. It has just been revised for the third time. We do have sufficient chairs though. How come your school doesn't provide chairs?

We just got chairs in the classrooms. These are kids thrown into small offices because there is no place else to put them. There is not enough space to put more chairs, even if someone wanted to.
