This paper examines all aspects of the curriculum-building method of block scheduling. It is written in the first person and provides the writer's personal opinion in the matter. It is addressed to teachers and educators. It concludes that the essential part of education is not what type of scheduling takes place, but rather the quality of the content of the lesson.

From the Paper:

"The bottom line about any type of scheduling is that it all depends on what is done within the time allotted. All educators have preferences and no one schedule will fit every teacher's philosophy. Likewise, every learner has his or hers preference. The problem is that a school as a whole has to comply with the final schedule decided by the principal. Some schools implement partial block scheduling (lab days) during a couple of days of the week. Maybe these types of hybrid schedules will eventually make there way into the education realm acknowledging the diversity in scheduling. Until then the debate as to which schedule is more effective will continue."
