Teenage years are very difficult, school is a huge part of most teenagers' lives and is very stressful for them. The problems vary from their peers to grades and I feel both could be resolved by reducing school hours.
Most every student I've asks claims that they almost always have about 25-35 minutes of free time after each lesson. If every class period was half as long there would be just as much learned and more of an impact. Rather than have class assignments we could have homework more often. Drivers ed, makeup work, tutoring and other various school activities could be scheduled for after school.
With school not as long, students will not be as hesitant or nervous about attending school. Many students have problems with other kids or are harrassed by them so it makes more of an impact with school being such a big part of their lives. Students wouldnt have enough spare time to harm anyone if school was shorter but a student could have enough time to meet people. Most "bullies" only pick on others when they are bored or feel badly about themselves. I feel there would be less school violence, suicides, and less absences.
We the people of zimmerman lane would like the barking and roaming dogs taking care of. This has gone on for 2 years. The neighbors would like this problem resolved.
At the September 4, 2001 East Point City Council regular meeting, Council passed resolution on an alternative site for yard waste disposal.
"Now, therefore, let it be resolved that the City Manager is directed to pursue the designation or acquisition of an appropriate plan for yard waste disposal for Council approval in the next 90 days."
"Be it further resolved that the City Manager shall begin immediately after the above date (90-days) the process of reclamation of the property known as Center Park back into a community park."
This resolution has never been upheld. This site is still being dumped in not only by the City of East Point but by private contractors. This operation has to stop and Council needs to get the City Manager moving with this resolution.
