    We have back to back special scheduling. Thwherever possible, the principal
    plans two specials one after the other. Last year was terrible: classes for
    example, A class would have music at 10:00 and art at 10:30. No room for
    late classes, no time to clean up or get organized. So we specialist
    complained and asked for time between classes. Now kids have music from
    10:00 to 10:30 and art at 10:35 or 10:40. Some teachers hate the down time.
    They use it for getting drinks, bathroom breaks or short recesses in nice
    weather. The specialists LOVE the down time. We think 30 minutes is too
    short a time for a class, but that is the way we have done it for almost 30
    years. You can change programs or teaching methods, but....
