Schools should have a later start time. A lot of people will argue that that the start time of schools is good as is right now. In my opinion, there are several reasons as to why schools should start later. Kids/Teenagers function better later in the day rather that early in the morning, it would improve attendance of schools, and the most important meal of the day.
Middle schoolers’ grades declining, laziness, and absences can all be caused by lack of sleep. Most Middle schoolers don’t get the greatest amount of sleep for school. Observers have noticed kids being lazy or yawning due to lack of sleep. Why not start school earlier? There are several reasons why schools should start later.
One reason school should start later is that less than 20% of kids get the recommended hours of sleep-9.5 to 8.5 hours- and that causes problems in the classroom and teens who do not sleep enough are moody in the classroom. Also less teens get in car crashes and are at a big risk for drugs,alcohol,depression, even suicide. Teens get in crashes because they do not get enough sleep at night.
Early school times have been causing children in schools to earn bad grades. Research shows that these children tend to do better when schools are delayed. On the other hand, some people think that starting schools later means having less time to do homework. If schools start later, children will have time to get more rest. Many students are not getting the right amount of sleep. If schools start later children will pay more attention in class, which will help them get better grades. Schools should start later in the day. First, schools should start later because many kids are not getting the recommended 8.5 to 9.5 hours of nightly rest. A poll performed by the National Sleep foundation discovered that nearly 6 in every 10 middle school students
Imagine staying up until the wee hours of the morning to finish the homework that had been accumulated during the day, only to have to get up a few hours later to catch the school bus, knowing that succeeding in class the next day would be short of a miracle. For many students, this scenario is not only feared but a reality they must face. The American Academy of Pediatrics states, “About 90% of high-school-aged adolescents get insufficient sleep on school nights…”(“Early Start Times and Depression”). Because of the lack of sleep students face, it poses serious problems for them the next day inside and outside of the classroom. Countless schools across America start earlier than the recommended
Did you know that 97% of students in a recent survey agree that schools should start later? I think that schools should start later for these reasons. First, if students got to sleep longer, students would have less of a chance of getting depressed . It would also put the students health at risk for many health problems.It would also increase students test scores, and grades, because they will be more awake during class If schools that start early started later, their students would be more awake in class, getting better grades, and would not be at risk of as many health problems.
Schools should start later in the day so students can get enough sleep to fully function. A student's academic performance has a great impact on their chances to get into a good college and have a successful future. First off, not getting enough sleep affects peoples health and immune system in the future. Also, many students might fall asleep in class and miss important notes and information. Finally, as a child gets older and starts turning into a teenager, their internal clocks changes and is very difficult to get the recommended amount of sleep. That is why school should start later in the
I think School should start later in the day. For instant less kids will be grumpy because they get extra sleep. No kids sleeping in class, means the teachers will be happier. Also more kids will be prepared in the morning for school.
According to a Consumer Affairs article “At least once a week 28 percent of High School students fall asleep in school, either doing homework or arriving late because they slept in too late” (“Survey:Teens”). This evidence proves that a later start time can benefit students. A later start time would help kids to deliver in many areas of the classroom. This trial shows kids with an early start time have trouble staying healthy, working in the classroom, and being around others. School should start later because kids are better able to give attention to their teacher, perform better in academics, and have less health problems.
Kids spend all day playing sports and all night trying to finish their homework. If school was later kids could go to bed after their sports and wake up and finish their homework before school. Even if they wake up at 6 to get it finished they probably have plenty of time to get it done, and they still have a better sleep then when they went to school at 8. Many kids have a hard time getting to bed before 11, but if we had school later kids could make up their lack of sleep by sleeping in later.
I’m pretty sure most people hate getting up super early in the morning to get to school. Am I right? Well I think it’s the worst! In my opinion, I think school should start later because it is better for one’s health and it’s better for students’ concentration in class. One other reason why school should start later is because it is more convenient.
A lot of teenagers complain about how tired they are in the morning. It’s so hard getting out of bed in the morning, especially when you go to sleep late at night. In my opinion, I think that school should start later in the day. We learn way better when we are fully awake. We have the energy to stay awake during school.
If school began an hour later this would let students get more sleep, as they would more than likely continue to go to bed at the same time they do currently. “Research shows that teenagers’ body clocks are set to a schedule that is different from that of younger children or adults. This prevents adolescents from dropping off until 11 p.m.,” (Kalish), with a different sleeping schedule caused by the hormone melatonin, which causes tiredness, it would be beneficial to start school an hour later. If most high school students don’t fall asleep until 11 p.m. and get up at 6:30 a.m., then most students will only get seven and a half hours of sleep, or less if they have to get up earlier because they live further away and have a longer commute. Studies show that after nine hours of sleep adolescents
Changing school start times has proved to be beneficial towards students learning. The National Sleep Foundation, says, “Young people who do not get enough sleep night after night carry a significant risk for drowsy driving” and then continues to say students achieve “lower overall performance in everything from academics to athletics.” If school started later and we got home around the same time, then we could get an extra hour of sleep. That extra hour of sleep could be very beneficial for students. That is just one way, pushing back school start times could be advantageous.
Many people argue whether school start times should stay the same or become later in the day. Most students already don't get enough sleep during the night and that can affect their learning experience in school (Wahlstrom). However some positive effects can still come from waking up early in the morning and getting to school around the same time. Although good can come from waking up early in the morning and sleeping in, students still need later school starting times to improve their overall health.
