What We Know about Block Scheduling and Its Effects on Math Instruction, Part II.
Kramer, Steven L.
NASSP Bulletin, v81 n587 p69-82 Mar 1997
A study of British Columbia high schools found that block scheduling can endanger mathematics achievement. Reduced math scores were attributed to irregular planning time, little opportunity to modify curriculum; and the provincial examination system. Longer time blocks cannot succeed without adequate planning time, curricular restructuring, and adequate administrative support. Scheduling extra study periods has not worked well.
