There are many reasons why students shouldn’t have homework, during this essay people will learn why having homework isn’t helping the student, except making things more difficult for them. There are 24 hours in a day, 8 of those hours belong to school. From the moment when a student wakes up, they begin to prepare for school then go to school, most schools start around 8:00-9:00 am, so most students get up 1-2 hours earlier to get ready. Students need at least 8-9 hours of sleep to be able to function. With students having after school activities that take up around 2 hours, students are exhausted and when they get home all the want to do is relax, but some of them have responsibilities that they have to do, which gives them less time to relax from a long day of school.
No matter how hard I try I can’t seem to fall asleep. Then suddenly I realize that school starts at 7:30 tomorrow morning and it’s somehow 11:30 p.m. now.

Some parents and outside influencers don’t see the benefits of having a longer lunch period for high school students. Students complain about how long school is now but they don 't have enough time outside of school to complete everything they are expected to. While it is understandable that some parents wouldn’t want longer lunches because it could result in safety issues and students having to remain in school 30 minutes longer than the traditional time, longer lunches would give students a chance to complete homework, get help from teachers, and eat a nutritious meal.

Nosich points out that just as we leave assumptions unexamined, we leave concepts unexamined as well (56). I would say another major concept I should have thought about was sleep. I thought that I could live off a few hours of sleep and be fine. I had had days were I wouldn’t go to bed until late and get up early so sleep wasn’t that big a deal to me.
Depending on how far away students live from the school, they would have to wake up as early as five so they can get ready and catch their bus on time. Lots of the students here are probably sleep deprived because they can’t fall asleep at night probably from stress, anxiety, insomnia, or even just homework. Students also have their extracurricular activities that make them have to push homework aside and do it later causing them to stay up late. If school started later, then students would be able to regain the sleep they need and function better at school. Another thing that should be changed about the school day is to give us a longer lunch.
