Most students in many schools, hate getting up early in the morning to go to school. Well I know I hate getting up early. In my opinion I feel that schools should start later on in the day. Starting schools later on the day would benefit for the students health, concentration in class, and it can be very convenient in many cases. The way starting school later could benefit the students health is one it allows the teen to get more sleep.
Should Schools in America Start Later Many kids in America come to school tired and not ready to learn. Being tired can effect your child's grades. Parents might not realize that their child is falling behind because of lack of rest. Teenagers should get up to 9 1/2 hours of sleep yet many kids only get up to 7 hours of sleep. I believe schools should start at 10 so that kids brains will function better.
Dear Edmonson County school board members, In the issue of school starting time I believe we should push back to 9am. As a teen I understand how hard it is to get up at 5 or 6 in the morning. I have 3 reasons with evidence to why I believe school start time should get pushed back. One reason that the school start time is that it could affect our grades negatively. The second reason is that if it is pushed back the teens who drive can get more sleep and be more careful on the road in the mornings while driving.
The amount of sleep you do need is on average 8-9.5 hours of sleep. You need this amount of sleep to be able to focus the next day. As a Student, I feel if I was able to get the rest I needed and then go to school more energized I would enjoy school a lot more. Somedays I would be in such a rush to get to school before 8:00 I wouldn’t even eat breakfast. If you don't get enough sleep after a while it can cause serious brain damage such as a loss of 25 percent of
Of course, if school started later, it would have to end late too. Most teens in high school have after-school activities, like work, volunteer work, etc., so it would be to hard to manage their time. However, school starting and ending
Most people will say that high school will be the best four years of a persons’ life, or that a person will miss high school once they are out in the real world. High school students would probably beg to differ considering the hours upon hours they spend doing homework or studying. Teens would also all agree that waking up in the early morning to get ready for school, or to not miss the bus is a dreaded part of their daily routines. Health Hours says “According to most sleep experts, most adolescents need about 9 hours of sleep per night. Today nearly 2/3 gets under 8 and 2/5 get under 6 hours of sleep per night.” This quote supports the fact that teenagers do not get the sleep that they need.
Park City High School should start at a later time for many reasons such as the improvement of academic skills and success, mental health and cut sleep-related car accidents down to a minimum. First of all, if students are coming to school with a good night sleep then their academic skills should be higher and they will be more successful. Scientists prove that your brain doesn't start working until roughly 10:00 in the morning. That means that any class before that the students are not actually learning and applying the information they learned. This would be a huge
Sleeping Schools Countless students all over the US struggle to keep their eyes open throughout the day because school classes start too early in the morning. If we were able to give an hour to students in the morning, we would see an increase in their physical mentality, their academic skill level, and an overall happier lifestyle. Many people will argue that starting school too late in the morning will cause after school activities -- such as sports and other clubs -- no time to meet before the night ends. But I must mention that we don’t need to push the start time that much later to see a huge improvement on student’s test scores, overall grades, and a student’s mood. The current school start time is unacceptable when thought about logically, and we must make the changes to have school start at a later time.
School Start Times: Waking Up to the Truth Imagine staying up until the wee hours of the morning to finish the homework that had been accumulated during the day, only to have to get up a few hours later to catch the school bus, knowing that succeeding in class the next day would be short of a miracle. For many students, this scenario is not only feared but a reality they must face. The American Academy of Pediatrics states, “About 90% of high-school-aged adolescents get insufficient sleep on school nights…”(“Early Start Times and Depression”). Because of the lack of sleep students face, it poses serious problems for them the next day inside and outside of the classroom. Countless schools across America start earlier than the recommended
For about 20 years now, school districts across the United States have debated delaying high school start times to start later so adolescent students are allowed more time to sleep, which studies say helps school performance and brain development. Most high schools in the United States start class at 7:59 a.m or earlier. Statistics show that starting school at these early hours can not only result in multiple physical, psychological and educational problems, but also widespread sleep deprivation. With a later school starting time, all of these issues can be resolved. Students need 8 ½ to 9 ½ hours of sleep per night in order to thrive both academically and physically throughout the day.
