Advisory is wasting school time

What is the point of advisory? We take 35 minutes twice a week to sit there. We are supposed to get information about college, prepare ourselves for the future and, in general, get “advised.” But let’s be honest, there are probably only a few teachers who take time to do this. It is a waste of time. We take time away from classes, time that we need, to basically have a free period.

While some students say they take time to work on homework and get projects done, the library and computer labs are filled with kids playing games and goofing off. This is not a good use of school time. Quite honestly, most would rather use this “free time” as a little extra time in tacked onto a regular class period to get work done, even if it is only 5 extra minutes.

Club days are understandable, and they are beneficial to our student body. We should have a time allotted on Fridays for club meetings. Pep rallies are also very important to this school, so this club period could be used for rallies as well. This time should be for club meetings or pep rallies, not ‘advisory’.

Wednesday advisory time should not be scheduled into our week, 35 minutes out of our day for blow off time seems silly. If students do not do their job and participate in advisory, and teachers do not advise, there really is no point. So 4 out of 5 days of the week we should be on regular schedule leaving Friday on a club day schedule.
