You probably do not see it or recognize it but they will spend hours doing homework. You may not see is since it has become a daily thing for you since you have been a child and since your child has started school. You may think they are fine but they are actually struggling just to stay on top of everything. Stop them every occasionally and ask them if they need help with anything. Whether it be something with their homework or something
From kindergarten to high school, students go to school 180 out of the 365 days in a year. From Monday to Friday, students dread going to school for eight hours, learning a multitude of subjects. Some students participate in extracurricular activities such as sports, tutoring, and extra classes causing the school day to feel very long and tiring. Growing up many students have heard or mentioned a series of complaints about school such as: it’s too long, it’s too tiring, it’s too much work, it starts too early, and it doesn’t have enough breaks/holidays. One of the most common complaints is about being tired and about the early mornings; many want to push back the time school starts.
Lots of people may disagree with the idea of us starting school later and say the school hours are just fine. They may come up with reasons like if we give the children too much time to sleep, they may gain too much energy and overtake the school. If that’s the case then schools need to make and enforce strict rules to keep their children under control, so that they don’t act out. They may also have a problem if we change the school dismissal time, because students already have dismissal plans that work. But then parents shall find an alternative way to get their children home that comprehends with the school’s schedule.
They will be extremely stressed and anxious about graduating and about not being able to complete 75 hours of community service. Also people in power at places that offer community service could be cruel to the students and cause them to be mentally unstable. This affects students performance in school. Additionally, many people believe that it is not that much to ask of students. In reality, students go to school for 8 hours, then goes to work or an extracurricular activity, then goes home to complete an extensive amount of homework that has them staying up late into the night.
Homework has been the bane of many a students existence for the past years, as countless think it’s unimportant. Restless nights of practicing equations and writing paragraphs are known by all children, especially within high school. Contrary to belief, homework benefits the average student so much more than people care to acknowledge. It conditions the minds of our children to think independently and become familiar with the knowledge they’ve gained. Grueling nights of completing page after page of homework only ready you for upcoming school work, much like in the words of Malcolm X, “The future belongs to those who prepare for it today.” The war on homework has been going on for quite some time, originally being upscaled in America during 1950’s to keep up with communist nations.
A solution to this is that school start times should be pushed will help the kids focus and do better in the morning class. In the morning I am and most kids are tired, I am never fully awake for school. Lauren Schloss said "I was tired for the first few hours of school," the same goes for me and many other people I know. Sometimes I sometimes forget what we learned, and I can not focus. And this all comes from lack of sleep.
Starting school later is a simple thing to change, and an important one. “Over 20% of U.S. middle schools start the school day at 7:45 a.m. or earlier.” I think it’s time for our school to change, too. Starting school at 7:46 doesn’t allow middle schoolers to get enough sleep. In our class, 60% of kids only get 8 hours of sleep or less. Mrs. Schwabenland, 7th grade Critical Reading teacher recommends this, “There are two times in life where you grow the most - when you are a baby, and when you are teenager.
Everyone in America has to go to school at some point some point in their life. Most students in California attend school for 6 hours a day. In Adelanto, CA students learn math, science, language arts, history, PE, and an elective during the time. Some students are struggling academically with this schedule. I believe that students would get a higher chance of success if they have an 8 hour school.
America’s education system has been an issue for quite awhile now, many students have complained about how they are taught on a daily basis. As a high school student who has been in three different American public schools, education is not what is going on inside. From students not even showing up to them showing up not caring can lead back to the way we are being taught. We are bored and tired of taking pointless tests with pointless information. All students dread the days when final exams arrive.
Into the Wild One has gone through countless years of schooling. Every weekday he/she has the same routine. He/she wakes up in the morning, sits in school for eight hours, and goes home to do their homework. Some people do like to have a routine a day. However, most kids do not like that they have to spend the majority of their beginning years on this earth at school.
