Next year we have no minutes! Our principals refuse to put it in, cause
then the reality of what looks like 50 minute classes would become 40
minutes. Plus, I found out yesterday that I'll have sixth and seventh
graders for 4 1/2 week sessions (25--27 per class) and after being told all
spring that eighth graders would be 25 per class, 5 1/2 week session, it's
suddenly 32 at 9 weeks. Principal's scheduling screw-up. I'm looking for
another job.
