Although parents would complain about students getting home at a later time, high school should start an hour later, because more sleep helps students get better grades and have overall better health. Sleep affects how we look, feel and perform on a daily basis, and can have a major impact on our overall quality of life. If it’s hard to perform daily tasks without sleep think of how hard it would be a student and keep up grades in high school without sleep. Which is why high school should start an hour later. “Later start times also generally correspond to improved attendance, less tardiness, less falling asleep in class, better grades...,” (School Start
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.
This will let the students be able to sleep in and stay up later because they will know they do not have to go to school at 7:30 in the morning. It will also let the students stay up later and play with their friend instead of going to bed. You may argue that it will not improve their health, but students are suppose to get 8-10 hours of sleep every night, but most students get less than 7 hours of sleep every night. ( National Sleep Foundation) Out of all the things students do, having school start later will help
A person could say that the current time that school starts is acceptable, and students just have to sleep and/or wake up earlier.They could say that the amount of sleep that students get won’t matter on how they perform and act in school and around others. They could even say that later school days will affect a student’s work after school. But, they may not know the benefits of later school days. A school day that starts at eight thirty A.M. allows students to get enough sleep. When they sleep well, students can boost their school behavior, attendance, and grades.
The majority of adults go to work for eight hours a day, then go home and spend time with their friends and family. They have time to do these things because oftentimes, they do not have extra work to do at home. The inestimable amount of homework given to students each week precludes the opportunities to do everyday activities. Although one of the main aspects of school is homework and the majority of teachers assign it each night, there is an ongoing debate about whether it is advantageous. Some say that homework is beneficial to students because it gives them more practice on the content they are learning, however, studies have proven otherwise.
Grade school is a place for creativity, knowledge, friendship, and innovation to be spread. It is also an opportunity to explore career paths and learn essential life skills. Now those opportunities won’t have the same availability as before because of a plan to add one and a half hours to the school day. Extending the school day is an unfavorable decision because students won’t have time to participate in after school activities, it depletes the time students have to complete work, and it will decrease the amount of free time students have. Being able to extend a class that a student is struggling in is a valid reason to add length to the school day.
Imagine going to school all day long just to come home at night and rush around to get your homework done, still having to go to practice later that night. Exhausting right? Well some schools in the United States feel that extending the school day will have an immense positive impact on society. But being in school longer robs students of their opportunity to bond with their family, and adds an economic burden to the district. Money can be a huge issue for schools if they are not careful about what they spend it on.
If students had more time to get a full amount of sleep at night, they would be more energized and motivated to start out their morning with a good attitude and come to school. A student must have motivation to succeed but a student also needs to pay attention in class in order to learn. Some psychologists claim the typical student 's attention span is about 10 to 15 minutes long, yet most High School and University classes last 50 to 90
High school can be rough! You have bundles of homework and to prepare for college. Stunned, I feel like you have less friends in high school, then you do in grade school, you have all these friends and you’re always spending time together, but once you get in high school, I feel like you lose all your friends. Once you go into high school I feel you get too know who your real friends are. Calmly, I try not to get too close to friends in high school because you never know if they will stick with you or they end of leaving.
Most teens think that school should start later in the morning but simply that would not make any since. Starting school later in the morning would make after school activities go way to late meaning there would be no after school activities, if there was after school activities there would be no time for social/family time when you would get home from those activities which could be bad for communication skills later in life , and lastly even if school started later teens would not go to bed any earlier they would still go to bed at the same time as they normally do. Current school schedules need to stay the same for junior high and high school students and not start later in the morning. In the first place, teens should be able to have the option of doing after school activities, but if you start the school later in the morning there would be very little time for those activities. “It is difficult to squeeze
