Ordinary people think merely how they spend their time; a man of intellect tries to use it, This concept of proper usage of time is presently a key issue in today's realm of education. School design, methods of teaching, and subject matter have changed considerably to improve learning, but very little consideration has been given to the variable scheduling of class time. The comment frequently has been made that today's schools are enslaved by conformity to clocks and time schedules. However, time has no respect for the learner's interest or subject matter. Sidney L. Besvinich states that "for years the majority of public high schools have acted as though all subjects could be effectively taught in equal blocks of time with equal frequency." Educators today are striving to find better and more efficient ways of utilizing both student and teacher time. The question has been raised as to whether greater achievement in learning results from a varied time schedule. Moreover, there is a need for knowing what the effects of varied time schedules are on certain subject fields.
