Grades are just numbers. They do not measure intelligence, in the same way that age doesn 't define maturity. At least once, majority of students in school have experienced getting poor grades. These grades are forcing them to be “smart” and, to such a great extent, they feel stressed and pressured. In fact, grades actually do extra harm to them than good since they have negative effects on students’ mental health.

Increasing the length of a school day would only increace the percentage of students who respond negatively to school. Therefore, increasing the school day would be detrimental to the student’s emotional
63.27% of students responded with a “Yes” to the question “Does your academic performance drop due to lack of sleep?” and the rest responded with a “No” in a survey conducted. A study conducted found that sleep deprived students inaccurately rate their performance as better than those students who received adequate sleep. However, their grades do not reflect the same and therefore the disparity in survey results can be associated with students not making the connection between their bad performance and lack of sleep. The “all-nighters” that students inflict upon themselves in an effort to cram all the material the night before an exam affects their memory, reasoning and problem solving skills (Buboltz, Brown & Soper, 2001). As a result, the student during an exam finds it difficult to recollect information or solve problems correctly.
In Conclusion, schools should start later than they usually do. It would be very beneficial for high schoolers for many reasons. A couple of those reasons are for grades, attendance, and sleep. “School timings not only affect the sleeping habits, but also the daily functioning of the body (Early)”. Not only the amount of sleep we get isn’t good, it’s bad for our body and the worse our body gets, the less we focus and the less energy we have.
Suspended students are more likely to do it again or become repeat offenders. Suspension sometimes fails to change the views of a student and they become repeat offenders, especially if it’s something that is a part of them or they can’t help it. The more suspensions that a student racks up, the more it gets on their record, the more their grade depletes and the less likely they will be eligible to be accepted into a college of their choice. Minor offenses are minor, which means ‘lesser in importance, significance, or seriousness’. Being suspended for cursing or sleeping in class will most likely encourage the thus the problem will continue to occur and the problem will never be resolved.
You need to be in class by seven thirty or risk getting detention. Even though this panic feeling of being late and tired is all too familiar to most teenagers if not all, many schools still have starting times before seven thirty and don’t realize that it greatly affects the amount of sleep a teenager gets resulting in lower test scores. Although getting enough sleep may not seem like that hard of a task, medical research shows that teens who regularly get too little sleep are
21% of teen motor vehicle accidents are caused by drowsy driving. Many teens everyday are complaining about their school start times being way too early.

Effects of student test taking are said to lead to test related nervousness. (Wei, Pecheone, and Wilczak, 8) The importance of the tests put pressure and stress on the student which leads to inaccurate scores. With the low scores from having anxiety over tests comes the teacher competition (Morgan, 69) Some teachers who are competitive want to do better than the others and that is the result of "RTTP, or Reacting to the Past Innovative" trying to get teachers to make the students do good on assessments, looking to
Therefore, schools should get rid of sports, for academic reasons, for instance kids who play sports but also has good grades can have difficulty doing homework after practice.

Countless number of kids grow up to be a person who has a better profession than any other of their classmates from there good achievements and also there grades from all there hard
First of all, without teacher assistance at home, the chances of making mistakes increase. Frustrated by mistakes resulting from not having any teacher guidance at home, students may feel stressed and anxious. Making mistakes can additionally cause students to feel like they are stupid and can cause students, who already dislike school, to dislike it even more. Also, homework takes away valuable time from other commitments that students have. Some students have part-time jobs and family responsibilities to fulfill.
In school students do not care about writing as much as they used to. If they would work harder in school, their grades would be higher and more colleges would want them. In Esther Cepeda 's research, she managed to prove that students test scores are going down. That is because they do not work as hard as they used to. Some students inadvertently slack off on their work.
