This is Hailey Bernot I am writing to discuss an important issue that I have noticed in Mentor High School. Thirty Three percent of teenagers report falling asleep in school and this is something that I have noticed daily at Mentor High. The school day at Mentor High School starts way too early and I think that many students and staff members would agree because it is affecting students learning and health. Schools across the world start at as early as 7 A.M. or as late at 9 A.M. Many early starting high schools have changed their starting times because students grades were dropping and they were not as prepared and focused.
I go through the same struggle almost every night. Most students can relate to that problem, and that is a big part of why we despise school. Another huge reason is because of the early start of the day. Everyone is tired in the morning which stretches out the morning and makes it feel an hour longer. I always have to rush in the morning because I oversleep by accident and Andrew has the same issue.
The grandchild wants to tell his or her grandmother of the many times that he or she had been “wishing myself home on the evening star” (782). While away at school, the grandchild learns that the evening star is really a planet and wants to tell the grandmother but is not sure if grandmother had enough education to understand the difference between a planet and a star. The conversations between the two doesn’t start till the sunrises which symbolizes the start of something new. In the fifth stanza, the grandchild tell the reader about “the heartsick panels of the quilt”, this shows the reader a connection for the grandchild between the old ways of life and new ways of life, that has been experienced while he or she was away from the grandmother, while being away at college (782). The quilt provides familiarity to the things that he or she has left behind at home while he or she was away at school.
High schoolers are the ones that fall asleep the most. With them having day jobs, school, and some having younger siblings, they don’t get enough sleep. Especially with exams and their Senior Theses that they had, they lose a lot of sleep. Even the little kids should get some sleep. The preschoolers are probably falling asleep anyway, since there is no more nap time for them.

He would go to parties and drink and take so many pictures with all of his so called new friends. He did this every weekend now and once decided to share these pictures on Facebook just to show everyone how much fun he has with all of his classmates. Once senior year came rolling around, he became eligible for a full ride scholarship for baseball to his dream school since the seventh grade. However, it was all taken away from him in a blink of an eye because of one picture with him and his best friends holding a couple of beer bottles. Small things like this can harm a person at any moment, which is further described in one of Robert Louis Stevenson's many short stories.

Human development is a long and complex process, varying wildly from individual to individual. Some children do not speak until they have learned to form complete sentences, and others remain in the stage of incoherent babble for years longer than average. Likewise, advanced math occasionally clicks in the brain of a prodigal eight-year-old, whereas many adults can never get a grasp on algebra. Disparities such as these are quite normal, even good for the survival of our species, but in recent years, a developmentally stagnating epidemic has swept through our school and debilitated many students. While most children are able to walk before the age of twelve months, it seems that an astoundingly large portion of Central’s population has not reached this basic milestone.
Middle school was extremely ardous for me . I constantly had to write essays every single night because we read one novel every week. It seemed like I could never have a break from writing. The sheer amount of homework was nerve-wracking because I never expected this much homework. I remember expressing some of my my thoughts in my journal such as how hard writing essays was and how challenging my math tests were.
Is homework becoming too much? Every day students spend hours upon hours doing homework every night and stressing out if they aren't able to finish it. The first form of homework was given as a punishment to the kids that would act up in class. The teacher would give them extra school work to take home and do instead of being able to go home relax and have fun. Although homework can help increase understanding of new topics this kind of practice is not helping students because it can interfere with sleeping, stresses kids and teenagers out and can cause depression, and even make a kid give up on school altogether.
Students who have to test weekly know where I’m coming from what is the point of testing weekly just to lead up to an even bigger test. Testing is already awful why add more stress. Anxiety levels are definitely going through the ruff, studying for a test with only twenty or more questions isn’t that bad but imagine you sitting in a stuffy desk wait filling in bubbles just so you do it for another hour. Students automatically hate the thought of testing.

I have held the hands of a geriatric patient suffering an acute myocardial infarction, knowing that I would be the last thing she would be able to feel. I’ve calmed down teenagers, blood still oozing from their wrists. I’ve woken up from crying in my sleep because of the motor vehicle rollover patient who we weren’t able to save. And the next day, I’m in school and nobody knows anything - and that’s how I like
All of the ridicules that his classmates said to him soon developed a low self-worth and a very violent and uncontrollable temper. Dr. Benjamin Carson’s mother (Sonya Carson) made him read two library books and write a handwritten report on the books he read every single week even though Ben Carson resented all the strict regimens. After a good several weeks of his mother’s unrelenting position, Ben began to find enjoyment in reading books which led to his increasing desire of books and knowledge. So this led to amazing his teachers and classmates with his improvement which the students didn’t really ridicule him as much anymore. Ben soon recalled several years later that he wasn 't stupid and within a year he was at the top of his classes.
Sports practices drain students even more, and homework only gets put off until much later in the day, causing students to stay up late and not get enough sleep. The cycle of exhaustion and sleep loss continues for the entire school week until students are finally given the relief of having the chance to sleep in on the weekend.
