Review Sessions

I wanted to open up a discussion about the review sessions. I have had issues with the early bird students having trouble getting out of class. It seems that many of the students are from 3-4 teachers and it thus has a huge impact on those classes. I thus have decided to shorten the review sessions to 20 minutes 7:35-7:55 instead of the 40 minutes they use to be. I have also decided to no longer have review sessions for quizzes and just have them for the big unit tests. Please provide me with feedback on this so I know how everyone feels about the change.
