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.
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
Many schools wish to improve their student's grades and take more interest in the academic excellence of their students. The way to increase grades among students and in schools is to let the students gain more sleep by starting school later, resulting in a higher performance of students and their grades. “Chronic sleep loss impairs the ability to remember, concentrate, think, and solve problems” (Richter). Students are prevented from taking advantage of the extra sleep they need, resulting in mental and academic problems. When teenagers suffer from a high quantity of sleep loss, they are not fully focused or ready to solve complications that might come their way.
It is scientifically shown that kids tend to stay up late, which leads them to waking up at a later time. Why is it crucial that schools start at a later time? First, sleep deprivation in teens is found to be related to the early start times of their schools. Secondly, starting school at a later time will benefit the school financially and improve its reputation. Lastly, kids perform better in school when received enough sleep.
In schools districts, teens should have later school start times because it can affect the way they perform in school and it can also give teens the amount of sleep they need for the school day. Some people may disagree and say that students should not have a later start in the school day, insists on having teens start even earlier in the day. In other words teens should have that extra sleep because it could change the future for them in many ways. A lot of people will agree with the statement that students need a later start in the school day and one reason for that would be is that it would give students the chance they need to perform better in school. In the article, “Bright and Early… or Not?”Achieve 3000 writes, “In fact, research form countries around the world.
Should Schools Have Later Start Times? It is the beginning of the school day and eyes are drooping because of the lack of sleep. The National Sleep Foundation says, “The roots of the problem include poor teen sleep habits that do not allow for enough hours of quality sleep... and a clash between societal demands, such as early school start times” (1). Could this problem be solved already if school start times were later? A regular school start time is around 8:00 A.M.
No matter young or old, rich or poor, there is one part of the day that no one can live without — sleep. This time is a crucial period of recovery and refreshment for the mind and body, and it has even been demonstrated that insufficient amounts of it can impair physical health, mental coordination, and lead to higher risk of chronic illness. In fact, recent studies have shown that moving the school day later allows for more productive sleep and less groggy teens, a significant step towards making the most of this essential time to recharge and rest. This is because of how later times align better with the teenage circadian rhythm and fit more easily into the day, making it much less difficult for teens to wake up for school. It has been shown that this not only improves academic focus, but by improving student capacity and reducing car crashes
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
Students desperately need more sleep. Studies have shown High Schoolers need 8-10 hours of sleep because their bodies and brains are still growing. Doctors say that starting school earlier in the morning prevents children and teenagers from getting a full night’s sleep, which can affect their health, safety and academic performance. Motivation is key to a students success. 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.
I propose that Carmen should start doing block schedule because this will give the students an opportunity to get more one on one with their teachers for longer class periods and to have less homework each night so that students aren't staying up late. 2)We should have block schedules at Carmen so that students are having more work time in class and less homework at night that causes them to stay up late. Having a block schedule will allow students to have less homework at night this also prevents them from staying up late. My friend who goes to a school that once had no block schedule. She had said they had changed to block schedule and that everything went very well for her after that.
