それでは、第2問 B の問題を見ていきましょう。
B You’ve heard about a change in school policy at the school in the UK where
you are now studying as an exchange student. You are reading the discussions
about the policy in an online forum.
| New School Policy < Posted on 21 September 2020 >
From：K. RobertsDear Dr Berger,
ー On behalf of all students, welcome to St Mark’s School. We heard
that you are the first Head Teacher with a business background, so
we hope your experience will help our school.
ー I would like to express one concern about the change you are
proposing to the after-school schedule. I realise that saving
energy is important and from now it will be getting darker earlier. Is
this why you have made the schedule an hour and a half shorter? Students at St Mark’s School take both their studies and their after-school activities very seriously. A number of students have told me
that they want to stay at school until 6.00 pm as they have always
done. Therefore, I would like to ask you to think again about this
sudden change in policy.

From：P.E. BergerDear Ken,
ー Many thanks for your kind post. You’ve expressed some important
concerns, especially about the energy costs and student opinions on school activities.
ー The new policy has nothing to do with saving energy. The decision
was made based on a 2019 police report. The report showed that our city has become less safe due to a 5% increase in serious crimes. I
would like to protect our students, so I would like them to return home before it gets dark.
Dr P.E. Berger
