Teens are wired to be night owls,’ he says,”(20). To add on to this, teens can’t just go to bed earlier because their brain won’t let them. Even though people think that bus schedules may be a problem and that kids should just go to bed earlier, buses can switch around their schedules and kids aren’t able to go to bed early very easily, so schools should still have a later start. When the pros and cons are weighed, the conclusion is obvious. Since kids will do better in school, more sleep will help their health and memory, and students aren’t getting enough sleep, schools should have a later start to the day.
Dear, Shane Backlund One time I was in school and I was so tired from waking up so early that I fell asleep in class. Because of the early starting times most of the time my first period class is so tired from having to wake up so early that we don’t concentrate and hardly get the work that needs to be done done. Our district have been debating the topic of how early should we start schools. I think that schools should start at 8:30 instead of 7:45 because just that little bit off sleep could change a tired and droopy student to the energetic student we all are. Early starting times for schools can have an unhealthy effect on kids.

Teens are at their important stage of growth and development, therefore they require more sleep than adults. The average teens requires an average of 9 hours of sleep each night to be fully awake and well rested. There are many factors that keep teens from getting enough sleep.

Today nearly 2/3 get under 8, and 2/5 get under 6 hours of sleep per night” (School Start Later. Healthy hours). Students are sevearly behind in sleep as they get older and that causes implications as said in the current paragrah as well as I also learned in Health class that chronic sleep loss also contributes to higher depression rates, suicidal ideation, and obesity. Schools starting earlier hurts the children's health. Another reason schools start earlier is because of the bus schedules.
Sadness is what one feels when thinking of the competitiveness of high school students today. Today’s teenagers are stressed out and sleep deprived, trying for that edge to make them better than the rest. Frank Bruni expresses this sadness in his article “Today’s Exhausted Superkids.” In the article, Bruni explains the problem with how hard today’s teenagers have to work and how it is affecting their growth, especially with sleep. Bruni states, “Before adulthood, a baseline amount is fundamental and nonnegotiable, or should be.” Everything in today’s society is enhanced and better; is it really?

Do kids really need to get up before daylight just to get to school on time? The answer is no. School 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.

A survey of 10,00 children showed that irregular bedtimes are linked with difficulties such as hyperactivity, acting out and being emotionally withdrawn. Researchers think inconsistent bedtimes probably affect young children like jet lag.” (npr.org) If they have the good, you can only hope that it is a never ending cycle of the good.

Research says that teenagers need to get between 8 1/2 to 9 1/2 hours of sleep every night in order to be at their prime.
