This needs to be changed because so many children miss out on school lessons that may be beneficial and when they do the make up work for it they don’t get the same learning experience. Adding extra time in the morning should be able to build up a child’s health and that can change the amount of nonattendance in school records drastically. There are many psychological effects of sleep deprivation in attendance such as that students will lack motivation to learn, anxiety levels will start to rise, and even depression will show up in some cases. Sleep is very important to put on a good performance in and out of the classroom and if students don’t have the right motives, they will not do their best. Fatigue from sleep only encourages their bodies to shut off, making more and more students feel sick, tired, ache, and hurt.

Schools should have more days off during the school year. First of all, we need more breaks so your brain can relax and get some time off of learning. Second of all, we need more sleep, if you can 't fall asleep one day of the week it will mess up your whole sleeping schedule. Lastly we will have more time to see our family members out of state.

Only 20% of adolescents are getting the recommended 9 hours of sleep.Adolescent have later sleep schedules than adults which makes them not able to fall asleep till 11 pm. With school starting less than 8 hours away. Adolescent are not getting the sleep they need. Yet this problem has not been solved. Early school starting times negatively affect High school students; therefore schools should start later.
Finally, schools shouldn’t bring back staring atime because of students after school activities. According to “Should Schools Start Later?” by Junior Scholastic, “A later start, say opponents, also interferes with some teens part time jobs and disrupts after school activities” (Scholastic 21). If schools start later, it would result in messing up everybody 's schedules. It could also result in students being more tired toward the end of the school day because they have no energy, because of the school
Most middle schools and high schools start school between the times of 7:30-7:45. Teens are very tired and do not want to go to school because of how early they have to wake up this has caused there to be many tardies to school. Mt school starts at 7:45 and I still think that we should push that start time back. A reasonable start time would be 8:30 and ending time would be around 3:50. This would cause teens to get much more sleep and not be as late to school.
Delaying Starting Time Do you feel exhausted when you wake up in the morning to go to school? Did you doze off in an important class? Consider this: What if schools started too early? Usually High School and Middle School starting times begin at 7 A.M in the morning, making teenagers wake up around 5:00 A.M to 6:30 A.M. causing teenagers that stayed up last night weary and fatigued when they arrive at school.

The number one problem in Pilot Grove Schools is that we have to be in school for too long. Some kids have to get up early for practices like, for sports or they have special chores in the morning to do with things like livestock or household chores. Another reason is that if the kids have homework, they need some extra time to do it or some extra time to email a teacher for help. Pilot Grove Schools should start later and end earlier because some universities in Belgium ran tests to see if the kids had better test scores and better grades with more sleep, and they did. We go to school for too long and we should change that, (SleepFoundation.org) says that “kids with more sleep are less restless and pay attention more.” We stay in school for about 8 hours a day and that should be changed.
At this point in a teenager’s life, their internal body clock is not functioning properly. Their body clock is set different from the other age groups, such as adults and children. It’s proven that teenagers just naturally want to stay awake in the later hours of the night, and then sleep in later in the mornings. According to a National Sleep foundation poll, at least 28% of teenagers fall asleep in their first class of the day. Someone could argue that this just makes going to their first class a complete waste of time.
For this debate I am debating why school time should stay the same. J.C.M.S middle school in Sierra Vista has a delayed start time of 9:00 a.m., and finish school at 4:00 p.m. This affects the children who are involved if afternoon sports, most time not getting out until 6:00 p.m sometimes later. If you have homework that same night after spending two hours doing a sport you might procrastinate and not do your homework at all or you will be tired and end up making mistakes that should not have been made. An earlier start time ensures an earlier release time letting sports start earlier and homework being done at an earlier time while not as exhausted from the day.
