Harvard mulls changes to class schedules and time between classes with an engineering school coming to Allston. [www.thecrimson.com]

MELISSA C. RODMAN and LUCA F. SCHROEDER, CRIMSON STAFF WRITERS
Currently, more than 80 percent of courses in FAS [Faculty of Arts & Sciences] meet between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., and only a minority meet on Fridays, [Dean of Undergraduate Education Jay M.] Harris said. In addition, courses have varied lengths—55, 85, 115, and 145 minutes, for example—and often overlap, he added. During the discussion period that followed Harris’s presentation, some faculty members raised concerns that extending the academic workday would negatively impact faculty with childcare responsibilities, and that students may not attend courses scheduled in the early mornings and evenings.

Let the market decide. If students don't sign up for a class because it's at 8 AM, then that's their right. If it's a required course and they don't show up, that's also their right.

Either way, they'll still get an A.
