According to the national sleep foundation it is natural that teenagers are not able to fall asleep before 11 P.M. If a student goes to bed at 11 P.M. at the earliest and then wake up at 6 A.M. then that is only 7 hours of sleep. You might think that is enough sleep, however, teenagers need 8-10 hours of sleep to be healthy and some teens go to bed later than 11 pm so they get even less sleep. Not only are students sleeping deprived, but
Appearance was not much of a matter to Catherine, so he send Dave with the same torn, smelly clothes every single day, but Dave knew exactly what to say when questioned “When asked, I had my readymade excuses Mother brainwashed into me.” (p.30). The evidence of abuse in Dave is going to make teachers aware of the abuse at home. Dave, who has been tremendously starved obviously will show sign of malnutrition and an angular body which will make teacher question if he is getting food from home and might call authorities. Also the marks, bruises and scars that are all over his body shows sign of abuse that the teachers will catch on too. And lastly, his state of mind , and his horrible appearance will open the eyes of teachers.
Teenagers need on average about 9 ¼ hours of sleep every night; instead only about 15% of teenagers get about that much sleep per night. Doctors all across America are recommending that schools across the nation start school after 8 A.M due to the lack of sleep that teenagers are getting. The lack of sleep that teenagers are obtaining is becoming a very serious issue for students because it is affecting their lives in a very negative way. A later start time for Brunswick High School would be extremely beneficial to the students that go through the school. The Brunswick Board of Education should start school at 8:25 A.M., because teenagers are not getting enough sleep and the lack of sleep is severely punishing these students physically, mentally, and academically.
First, Dropouts have difficulty finding jobs. Government data show that only 31 % of students who dropped out of school in the 2009– 10 school year Were employed the following October.

It seems like JIm is getting angry with everyone telling him that he could have brought her over so they could feed her somehow, or that it was wrong to shoot her the next morning she said she was hungry. Jim was just getting tired of listening to his poor daughter say that she was hungry each and every day. Jim got angry when JIm Maxwell came and took everything of JIm’s. “Henry Maxwell didn’t have no business coming and taking all shares. He’s got plenty of his own.
With more sleep, kids will be able to remember what they learn in school everyday. Even if they forget to study, they should still get a good score, but should study anyway. A study performed by Dr. Kyla Wahlstrom at the University of Minnesota showed improvements in attendance and alertness, along with a decrease in student-reported depression(The National Sleep Foundation). Teens need eight to ten hours of sleep each night, but most get less. According to a study conducted by the CDC’s Youth Risk Behavior, 69% of U.S. high school students get less than eight hours of sleep(Start School Later).
One reason school should start later is that less than 20% of kids get the recommended hours of sleep-9.5 to 8.5 hours- and that causes problems in the classroom and teens who do not sleep enough are moody in the classroom. Also less teens get in car crashes and are at a big risk for drugs,alcohol,depression, even suicide. Teens get in crashes because they do not get enough sleep at night. Another is that grades up when teens sleep in and absences drop by 15% in Bonneville by starting school later. These are both examples why school should start later in the day.
Such as, continuous end to our unhealthy habits, an increase in graduates, and a more energetic and motivated society.

Larger children tend to be slower and happen to be lazier as well. As an obese child, growing up and moving through high school will be harsh. Many experiences may result in bulling, fighting, and a possible drop in self-esteem.
Out of all the challenges in my life, I think bulimia nervosa has stuck out the most with me. That was a really tough time in my life, everything tasted great but I knew I would eventually get rid of it. It’s like life was mocking me and I probably deserved it. My self-esteem was at its all-time low, when I told my friends they got angry and told me that that was idiotic of me; and it was. I had anorexia before but then they noticed and I had to start eating again.
It was tough, my high school’s starting time was even earlier than my middle school. To make it even worst, by that time I had developed my daily sleeping pattern to even later in the night. I often went to bed around 1 am and woke up at 6 am to get ready and catch a bus. It was disastrous; I did not like a single minute of it. It was already hard for me to go about my day with 8 hours of sleep, now I was getting only 5 hours of sleep.
