Simula AY 08-09, ang karaniwang linggo ng bawat Isko ay magsisimula tuwing Martes at sa halip na walang pasok sa kalagitnaan ng linggo ay lagi nang may long weekends.
Personally, nakakainis dahil I always look forward to Wednesdays. After a stressful Monday or Tuesday, I at least have the mid-week to take a breather.
IMO, this will only breed a less productive student body. Professors will probably lessen their requirements seeing as how they have to consider their students' being busy throughtout the work week. To add to that, the stress level of students build up throughout the week so come Thursday or Friday, they're less likely to perform as well as they could have had they been given the Wednesday break that we have now.
Of course on the flipside, this move was in response to PGMA's Holiday Economics. But I would like to think professors can and will find a way to make up for classes that have been suspended (e.g. by moving at a faster pace; holding extension classes)
I still think wala namang dapat baguhin. Wala na bang magagawa tayong mga hamak na mag-aaral lamang?
