Everyone in America has to go to school at some point some point in their life. Most students in California attend school for 6 hours a day. In Adelanto, CA students learn math, science, language arts, history, PE, and an elective during the time. Some students are struggling academically with this schedule. I believe that students would get a higher chance of success if they have an 8 hour school.
And while teenagers are going to bed later, their school start times are often becoming earlier as they advance through middle and high school.” My solution is this, middle school and high school start times should be later, while elementary school start times should start earlier. Many younger children go to bed early anyway, so naturally they get up early. Also, younger kids starting school earlier will let them be more focused and engaged in the
We also need more energy for every class so we won’t fall asleep in class. It would be good to have energy in class everyday.Then I think we don’t really need any electives, we just need to get more credits so we can move on. If we have less class periods we will have enough time to finish work in class with help from the teacher. We will also have enough time in between classes. There will also be enough time to ask all the question about how we do our work and at least finish some of your work in class.
Sound familiar? Well some people want the school day to start earlier for various reasons. Could you imagine having to get up earlier then you do now for school? I think they should keep the Later start because it is more beneficial for them to start school later and get the rest we need to learn. Nearly two years ago the Montgomery County leaders voted to start the school day later so that kids could get the sleep that they needed to function during the school day.
Going to school a little later could be the key to that extra rest. Even 1 hour of rest could be the difference between you falling asleep in classroom and not understanding the material to being attentive and understanding everything that is being taught. When the students are awake, they become smarter, and when they become smarter their test scores begin to rise. When the test scores begin to rise, our world education ranking improves, and that is just what we want to see. The issue for students who attend school at 7:30 in the morning, is they don’t hesitate or think twice about falling asleep.
For example, in high school as a teenager in they expect for their new students to act like young adults. Unlike middle school where teachers hold your hand and walk through everything high school is not like that. In high school, most teachers are not going to beg their students for them to turn in work that is missing or late. I learned first-hand last year I was a bit slacking in my science grades, missing work, Forgetting makeup work. My teacher never reminded me or told me multiple times to do my work.
Also in the article it says “The research shows, for example, that middle- and high-school benefit more from sleeping late than younger students.” This is saying maybe middle school and up is good to go to sleep later at night. So maybe they can let the little kids (elementary schools) should go to school later, because there practices won’t be as long; however, I still think that we should stay the same time. Also like I said your parents probably go early in the morning and don’t come back till the
For middle school sports, this period could help reduce the need for weekend practices. If school is ending later than normal, then this would mean that those athletes would be getting home at an even earlier time than they would with regular sports practices. What time schools should start, is a huge topic discussed in education today. Many believe that schools should start later than they do now. If they did, students would be able to get more rest, parents would be able to be home to get their children off the bus, and athletes would be able to be home earlier than they already are.
“So why don’t teens - who need about nine hours of sleep each night - just go to bed earlier? Researcher Paul Kelley from the University of Oxford in England says that adolescents experience a change in their biological clocks. As a result, they naturally fall asleep later in the morning.” Achieve 3000 writes. This piece of evidence can support the fact that later schools start times can be beneficial for teens because they have changes in their biological clocks they tend to wake up later and if schools start later more teens may arrive on time. Another piece evidence, Achieve 3000 writes states, “But Bridget Shelton, a freshman at Seattle’s Roosevelt High School, is looking forward to a later start in the school day.
In other words if we stick to the school hours you will be prepared for the upcoming years of your life.It has been proven that waking up early can help with the amount of energie you have throughout the day. In addition most people think about themselves and forget that it your parents or the bus driver drives you to school every morning. Adults tend to have jobs that start earlier. Therefor you schedule will somewhat interfere with
If high schools started later, students could spend more time in school while they were wide awake. A third reason for classes to start later is the physical and mental health of teenagers. A study by the Sleep Foundation Organization showed that increased sleep can reduce the likelihood of depression, metabolic defects, and obesity. It can also increase productivity, attentiveness, mood, and grades. Due to early school start times, teens are experiencing serious health problems.
