I agree with starting school a later time in the morning because it will benefit the students by functioning properly in school and it will prevents car accidents. On the other hand, other people disagree with my argument because they argued that kids need to go to bed earlier. My first reason why school should start at a later time, is that kid will perform and function better in school. Having to get up at 6am in the morning to get ready for school can be very stressful. Kids will get up early to go to school and still feel sleepy because they're sleep-deprived and that can affect how they perform in school.
Also in the article it says “The research shows, for example, that middle- and high-school benefit more from sleeping late than younger students.” This is saying maybe middle school and up is good to go to sleep later at night. So maybe they can let the little kids (elementary schools) should go to school later, because there practices won’t be as long; however, I still think that we should stay the same time. Also like I said your parents probably go early in the morning and don’t come back till the
Teenagers need many hours of sleep for them to be productive during the school day. By waking teens up as early as 5:30 in the morning just so they can get ready for school and be there on time is crazy. There are many different reasons schools should not be starting this early including bad grades, health issues or even injuries. By starting school so early in the morning teenagers aren't getting the eight to nine hours of sleep they need to function correctly during the school day. Having a later start time would be beneficial in more than one way.
One team will go after school and the other will come back later and practice. Which limits the amount of family, homework, and free time. If school were longer it would reduce the amount of time that each of them could use the gym. They would have to make it equal time. If students have a job after school and play a sport, then they probably will fail to be able to bear both with school starting later.
You need to be in class by seven thirty or risk getting detention. Even though this panic feeling of being late and tired is all too familiar to most teenagers if not all, many schools still have starting times before seven thirty and don’t realize that it greatly affects the amount of sleep a teenager gets resulting in lower test scores. Although getting enough sleep may not seem like that hard of a task, medical research shows that teens who regularly get too little sleep are
For many children, one of the biggest struggles that occur when going to school, is getting up early and making it to school on time. Many kids wish for “just five more minutes” to sleep in before having to get ready for school. Because of this, one main topic in education today, is whether the start time of schools should be later. While starting school an hour later might have its downfalls, the strengths, and advantages it would provide students with, outweighs the disadvantages. One struggle for students of all ages, is the fight to wake up, and stay awake through the whole day.
PCEP needs to change their start times for the better of their students. If we pushed the school start time back an hour it would benefit everyone. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine say we shouldn’t start school any earlier than 8:30 am. According to sciencedaily.com, a CDC study found that 85.6 percent of U.S. high schools started before 8:30 a.m. Earlier start times lead to car accidents, depression, and poor academic performance.
Sometimes we don’t have enough time to finish lunch and barely have time to do activities. They would be able to keep electives and short class time. Then sometimes we can’t finish our work and we will have to ask the teacher for help and they might not be there. We need more class time so we can finish our work and have it all memorized for the next day. We also need more energy for every class so we won’t fall asleep in class.
More sleep will cause the kids to be more awake and aware in classes and so they can focus on their studies instead of focusing on trying to stay awake because they didn’t get enough sleep. In paragraph 4 it states,”Negative effects of sleep loss include impairments in mood, attention, memory, behavior and executive function.” This shows how kids in school with lack of sleep are really affected by this and will cause them to lose focus on their studies. In all, school is just better later. In conclusion, it will just be better for students to be able to start school later because it will benefit them more. Starting school early will not just be better for their grades, but to just be more awake and aware in their classes.
About 87 percent of American high school students are chronically sleep deprived, according to a 2006 survey from the National Sleep Foundation. Most middle schoolers and high schoolers are sleep deprived because school starts too early. Most schools start really early, causing students to not get enough sleep. Schools should start later to prevent emotional disorders, depression, and anxiety from being sleep deprived. If school starts later, then students will be healthier.
