6+1 Initiative

Did y'all catch this bit of controversy from the Millburn Board of Ed ?  One board member has suggested a substantial change to the way high school is organized.  Board President Michael Birnberg has suggested what he is calling a 6+1 initiative...high school students would take 6 classes instead of 7 until the AP exams in the Spring.  The last month of school would be more flexible, with possibly one intensive course of an internship. 

Opinions?  I do hate how the last few weeks of school are devoted to movie watching.   And private schools have used this approach to curb senior burn out (and bad behavior) for years, by getting seniors off campus in May.  Wonder if it would work in Millburn?
