However, once that high of energy is over, one then experiences a crash. Students feel out of energy and extremely tired. This crash is the part that is the main problem. People can’t refocus themselves after consuming large amounts of sugar. In the classroom, every second of every class is beneficial and having to take the time having to get back into the learning mindset each day can hurt academic performances.
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.
Academic stress from the intensive demands of developmental and academic tasks greatly influences the mental health of students (Guo, Wang, Johnson & Diaz, 2011). As well, school curriculum has become increasingly difficult. Through the intense modules, student’s mental and physical health are deteriorating (Guo, Wang, Johnson & Diaz, 2011). A study conducted revealed that due to the intense curriculum in school, students are sleeping less during the week than when reported in previous years (Edens, 2006). Not only does school effect their physical being, but due to this, their academic performance decreases.
Exhaustion is a major problem, it will take a toll on students mentally and physically. The extended day will not only affect the students, but the teachers as well. This will cause the day to be slow and hard to comprehend if the students can 't stay awake. Coming home and crashing on the couch instead of doing homework will be the result of a ten-hour school day. Long days may wipe all the energy out of everyone.
Teens spend a great portion of each day in school; however, they are unable to maximize the learning opportunities afforded by the education system, since sleep deprivation impairs their ability to be alert, pay attention, solve problems, cope with stress and retain information. Young people who do not get enough sleep night after night carry a significant risk for drowsy driving and emotional and behavioral problems such as irritability, depression poor impulse control and violence; health complaints; tobacco and alcohol use; impaired cognitive function and decision-making , and lower overall performance in everything from academics to athletics. Hectic schedules with afterschool activities and jobs, homework hours and family obligations, and a clash between societal demands, such as early school start times , and biological changes that put most teens on a later sleep-wake clock. As a result, when it is time to wake up for school, the adolescent’s body says it is still the middle of the night, and he or she has had too little sleep to feel rested and alert. I believe there are pros and cons to starting school at later times , but I think it would help and increase the academics and health in high school students to get more sleep and have a later start time to at least give it a try and compare the differences in start times after a while and see the differences in academics and moods and go by what’s working best for students and allowing them to get the education they need , while getting enough sleep and not harming their bodies
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.
Meeting outside of class with my professors to discuss concepts has helped me significantly. Trying to do well in school and dealing with the appropriate amount of sleep is a struggle when one doesn’t know how to properly manage one 's time. I tend to procrastinate, and get easily distracted doing simple assignments. As a result, I tend to stay up later than I should completing school work and don’t receive sufficient sleep.
Starting a new school every year or two is difficult for a teenager. Awkward situations can arise if you do not know a teacher, principle, or other faculty names. Moving in the middle of the school year can be even more challenging for a young teen. Other students may be ahead or behind the transferred student depending on the way the instructor teaches the class, causing the teen to adjust to where the other students are in their studies. These transitions cause the teen to feel like school is redundant and boring.
Kids who see food commercials on tv consume 45 percent more food than kids who don’t, and they eats fewer vegetables and fruits ("Unhealthy Food Should Not Be Marketed to Children"). If kids don’t eat enough vegetables and fruits, then they won’t get enough nutrients. Some schools started promoting vegetables in schools, and “the study found that schools doing so at lunch boosted daily fruit consumption by 26 percent, vegetables by 14 percent, and whole grains by 30 percent”(“Introduction to Should Junk Food Be Sold in School? : At Issue”). By adding healthier meal options, some schools were able to make students eat more healthy nutrients.
If you ever wake up and not want to go to school because your brain hurts than join in. We need time off school to recover from everything we have learned in just one trimester. As well as, it can be bad to not have breaks because people will have bad attitudes and act bad during people. Some people get energy when they don’t do activities out of school. If
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.
This disorder can affect different people at different times (The Nemours Foundation). As people age, their fears may change and replace another fear (The Nemours Foundation). One example, from the article Anxiety, Fears, and phobias is “Kids ages 4 through 6 have anxiety about things that aren’t based on reality, such as fears off monsters and ghosts. Kids age 7 through 12 often have fears that reflect real circumstances that may happen to them, such as bodily injury and natural disaster (The Nemours Foundation). In America, four million adults suffer from anxiety disorder every year (Goldburg).
