Phnom Penh, Cambodia – In an unprecedented move, the Angkor Wat Academy in Cambodia has introduced a controversial new policy: mandatory napping sessions for all students to boost academic performance. The perplexing initiative, spearheaded by school principal Sopheak Seng, has left both students and parents scratching their heads.
Seng, who holds a Ph.D. in educational psychology, believes that regular napping can have a significant positive impact on students’ cognitive abilities and overall well-being. As a result, he has introduced a compulsory 30-minute “nap time” into the school’s daily schedule, with all students required to rest in designated napping areas.
“We’ve all heard the saying, ‘you snooze, you lose,’ but I believe it’s quite the opposite,” explained Seng. “Research shows that a brief period of rest can improve memory, focus, and creativity. Our ‘Napping for Academic Success’ program is designed to help our students reach their full potential.”
The unusual policy has been met with mixed reactions from students and parents alike. While some praise the school’s innovative approach to education, others question the effectiveness of napping in an academic setting and worry about the potential loss of valuable learning time.
As the debate over the “Napping for Academic Success” program continues to unfold, the world watches in fascination, eager to see whether the experiment will indeed lead to improved academic performance or simply go down as one of the most bizarre educational initiatives in history.
