Assuming a student arrives home from school and immediately begins to accomplish his list of tasks, he would have only three hours to do so if he were aiming to obtain the recommended levels of sleep. This arrangement is not reasonable. This arrangement will lead to sleep deprivation. This arrangement will cause the performance of all students to suffer. The four-day school week is unreasonable in its demands of students, whose productivity levels would drop as their hours of sleep
⅖ of students who go to school who start at 8:00 or earlier only get 6 hours or sleep. And ⅔ of students who go to those schools only get 8 hours or sleep (sleepfoundation.org). Teens should get 9-10 hours of sleep per night so that they can do their very best during the day. If we had late start school, then students could do better in school and then that could affect their entire life. Why do schools start early if there are no benefits?
Or, like Botstein had suggested in his article, we could have high school start after sixth grade and go through tenth grade. By doing so, it would teach kids the basics (reading, writing, math), allow kids to gain more experience in the real world, and allow them more time to pursue opportunities. According to Francine Prose in "I Know Why the Caged Bird Cannot Read", students are limited to their personal experiences. Kids are in school for thirteen to eighteen years (counting preschool, kindergarten, and college), so they do not really have any personal experience. By requiring high school to end at tenth grade kids are enabled to expand their experience and mature rapidly, we might also develop "goals that are worth striving for", a point made by Ravicth in her article.
Everyone in America has to go to school at 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 that time. Some students are struggling academically with this kind of schedule.I believe that students do not need to go to school for 8 hours a day be successful. I think going to school for 8 hours will help a lot but at the same time it takes up a lot of time and we are in school for 6 hours already, and we have to get up around 6 and 7 because school starts at 8 but certain schools starts at 7 so we are lucky to have school start at 8 and by been at school for 8 hours will mess up our schedules because
Many students in that Anaheim Union High School district follow their normal school routine. This routine begins with waking up and being ready to start class by seven-fifty a.m. School ends at two-thirty seven pm. and many students go out with their friends or go home, but the truth is that this isn’t helping the average student to go to college and succeed, living a happy life. In order to increase student success at Anaheim schools, the school board needs to increase the number of school days and have mandatory study hall hours after school. Gladwell, the author of Marita 's Bargain states, “KIPP students do three extra weeks of school” (10).
Stephie Grob Plante, a writer and essayist, stated to Racked.com, “One-fifth of American student wear school uniforms…” Many children are required to have school uniforms but many more do not. Instead they have rules that state what they are and what they are not aloud to wear to school on a daily basis. Schools should require students to wear school uniforms because they provide extra safety, they help students concentrate on academics, and they save time. It is believed that school uniforms do not provide students with more safety. J. Scott Granberg-Rademacker, Jeffrey Bumgarner, and Avra Johnson, a group of professors that analyzed a national, stated that "school uniforms increased the average number of assaults by about 14 [per year]
Bernard Trafford, a head teacher of the Royal Grammar School argues by stating, “…school starting later will only cause most teenagers’ internal clocks to drift later, and assuring in a matter of weeks they would find it just as hard to get out of bed.” This claim that’s students starting school later will only make students go to sleep even later on school nights. But, researcher have advised that schools should switch to a later starting time for middle and high school students, due to the fact, it will improve students’ health, safety, and academic
Kids can be in school at a longer time and will not be on the streets. These are valid reasons on why the School Board should add more hours to a regular school day. If the School Board added one and a half-hours to the day there would be more class time. You wouldn 't have to rush through the last work beet because you didn 't understand ,so you can talk to the teacher about the work you don 't understand. At the end of class you can have everything done and ready to go home or onto the next class.
In her detailed analysis Ripley expresses that, “Athletics even dictate when school starts: Despite research showing that later start times improve student performance, many schools begin before 8 a.m., partly to reserve afternoon daylight hours for athletic practice” (11). In addition, “Players spend long hours practicing, and that commitment extends to the rest of the school, from late night band practices and prep rallies to meetings with parents” (Ripley 11). This shows that sports do not help institutions and they cause many complications that conflict with learning. Certainly, school sports are an issue, they shift focus away from school work and should be put to
High school can be rough! You have bundles of homework and to prepare for college. I feel like you have less friends in high school, then you do in grade school, you have all these friends and you’re always spending time together, but once you get in high school, I feel like you lose all your friends. Once you go into high school I feel you get too know who your real friends are. Try not to get too close to friends in high school because you never know if they will stick with you or they end of leaving.
The only reason people wouldn’t agree would be because they want to spend time with their children, but they will still be able to because year round schooling gives short bursts of breaks about two weeks every other month(Towler). Finally, Year-Round Schooling would be a great idea to interpret and merge into our school . so that we can not just learn more but not be stressed out and forget what we learned the previous year. What they don’t know is that the People around kids need them to go to school all the time not just for education but, also so they may go to work and feed their families. This method of teaching is something that I have experienced when I was a child and I enjoyed learning while taking one week break about every
To be successful you must go to their office hours because thats when you 'll get your relationship with the professor. Missing class is not smart because of the fast pace, you 'll miss out on notes and helpful material especially if it’s a three hour night class. Your professor is most likely has a doctorate in the field they are teaching unlike in college the football coach can be a guidance counselor but
Teachers think the students will ignore them while they are talking to the class. With this amendment, it includes that if a teacher, or any adult, is speaking to you or the entire class, headphones will be out and you will pay attention to whomever is talking at the time. The headphones will also not be in use during group projects and presentations. Teachers also think that it would use up too much of the student 's battery, and the chromebooks would die by eighth hour. Although, if the student’s chromebook is one hundred percent charged when they get to school, they would not be dead by the end of school.
In elementary school though, parents and their children may not have to buy extra materials for the new year as much of what they need, they already possess at home. In conclusion, 6th graders should stay in elementary school because of numerous social and emotional reasons as well as financial and educational difficulties they may face at a new school. These include: teasing/ bullying, negative outcomes in the future, and anxiety/ depression. In the end, if students stay at elementary school they can personalize their education, have a better idea of what they still need to learn, and interact with younger
I am the sibling of a student currently attending Melrose High School. I am contacting you to request that the district implement healthier start times for middle and high school students attending Melrose Public Schools. Currently, Melrose Veterans Memorial Middle School and Melrose High School have a start time of 7:45 a.m. Studies show there should be a delay in morning classes until 8:30 a.m. or later. Doing this will maximize the intellectual potential of the students in our district. Are you and the School Board aware that Melrose High School is apart of the 40% of U.S. schools that start before 8 a.m.?
