In middle school kids need to prepare for high school. This means they need to be more adult like and not child like. Recess is for young children who have lots of energy to blow off. Middle schoolers do not, so they do not need recess.
I think that the middle school and high school should get recess because we don’t want to be working from tell school starts tell it ends, that would be so tiring. We would like to have a break, and not sit in our desks/ tables for 90 minutes each period, and our backs start to hurt and we get sleepy/ tired. I also think that it would be a fun thing to do, and it would help wake us up so that we’re not falling asleep in class.

Many students want to go home and please their parents with a good test score. It makes them feel accepted. To a child, their parents being proud of them is the best thing that they could receive. But in middle school, many students are failing those tests, getting bad grades. The only difference between elementary school and middle school is more individual topics and recess.

As whispers of a schedule change to a four-day school week reach the attentive ears of the students, a humming buzz of interest fills the school. Students daydream about the potential benefits that would accompany the alteration, gossiping with their peers at every possible chance in an attempt to discern all of the information. The more they consider the new four-day week, the more they wish for a change. The students would be able to sleep late for an extra day every week and spend more time with their family and friends. This is the reason why over a hundred school districts, mainly in rural communities, have made the change. However, the four-day school week is not as ideal as it originally seems. A myriad of problems accompanies these
School days are long and most of the time middle schoolers can 't wait to the end of school. That 's why recess should be there, it allows to enjoy sun or enjoy snow or whatever season. It also allows the kid to have su which is healthy for you also it gives you fresh air. Because otherwise a teenager could make a problem from having the lack of movement. One example is middle schooler boy who caused a disturbance got treated badly because sometimes he caused a disturbance and that hurt his self esteem. All because he could not go outside, from one story by a mom on her child. Another reason is middle schoolers are socializing a lot more and they feel they need to talk to their friends and recess is perfect time for that. Also it will solve the cellphone problems with recess because if middle schoolers want to socialize than maybe recess can stop kids from going on their phone. Also having no recess will make middle schoolers feel even worse. To explain more middle schoolers friendships can be hurt because they can 't talk. One example of that is when I was in 5th grade one of my best friends and I got to talk a lot during recess but when they took that away in middle school I could not talk to him that much
What would you do with two more hours of sleep each night? Many students would say that it would help them complete school work and get enough sleep to not be tired throughout the school day. Students who are not well rested show up to class drowsy and not ready to learn, however students who get decent hours of sleep each night come engaged and ready to learn. Schools in the United States should have later start times because it is important for teenagers to get eight to nine hours of sleep at night and people’s bodies are not built to get few hours of sleep.
The issue concerning the best time for schools in the United States to start has been quite a controversial one throughout the years. In the contemporary society, and on average, school going children and teenagers do not like waking up early to prepare to go to school. Often they find it as a major challenge, especially if they stayed up late at night doing schoolwork, engaging in chores, or other activities. Nevertheless, to obey the school rules, they do not have any other choice or alternative other than waking up and making sure that they are in school on time. This kind of lifestyle is dangerous, and students become exposed to different kinds of risks. Students can develop health problems, such as not being able to sleep, or develop depression. Therefore, schools, not only in the United States, should start at a later time in the morning.
According to the American Association for the Child's Right to Play, many school systems have dropped recess since 1989. “Personal conversations with principals and teachers suggest that they feel pressured to pack more instruction into the school day because of new calls for accountability” (Jarett Olga).

It becomes very difficult for students who participate in sports directly after school or those who ride the bus to find time to meet with a teach to get help. If they were to stay after school the students who ride a bus would risk missing their bus which lead to a difficult situation for their parents. Many parents are working eight to five jobs or multiple jobs and can’t take an hour to pick their student up and drive them home. If a student missed the bus because they stayed after school their parent could end up losing their job because they had to leave work. A longer lunch break would allow students to go to teachers classrooms and get help during lunch so they don’t miss the bus after school. Although this could result in students being in school 30 minutes longer it gives them the opportunity to complete some tasks that would cause them stress later that
Kids need a break. Just because school is year round, doesn't mean that students will get less of a break. The breaks will just be more spread out. The summer break most kids get is about three months long the year round school break averages out to about three and a half months. Would you rather get 3 months off or 3 ½ days off? Because students tend to have better educational and grade scores when school is year round, it makes sense to try to have it year round. (should kids be in school year round?). When kids get of school they want to relax. Studies show that it takes less pressure of the kids when school is year round. When school is year round you actually get more days of than off summer vacation. Year round school is the same amount of days as a normal school year so really it does not matter. I think that you will remember information better when you do not have that big gap in the summer time. (should schools be in session year
