this happens because when you sleep a lot on the weekend and on Sunday you're not tired you don't get enough the night of making you tired on Monday. Even though schools can not control what students do out of school, they can accept it and help them out by moving school to a later time. There are many reasons why adults and kids don’t get enough sleep and there are things that they can do to help, but schools should definitely consider making school start later. If school started earlier health wouldn't be such a problem. Having only 5 hours of sleep is very unhealthy and it's the school district's fault.
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
There are 24 hours in a day, 8 of those hours belong to school. From the moment when a student wakes up, they begin to prepare for school then go to school, most schools start around 8:00-9:00 am, so most students get up 1-2 hours earlier to get ready. Students need at least 8-9 hours of sleep to be able to function. With students having after school activities that take up around 2 hours, students are exhausted and when they get home all the want to do is relax, but some of them have responsibilities that they have to do, which gives them less time to relax from a long day of school. On top of having homework students end up staying up late getting all their work done, which cause them to be less focus the next day not allowing the
Did you know that not enough sleep for teens can lead to poor organization, poor time-management skills, and can make them impulsive? People are debating about how teens need more sleep. Not enough sleep isn’t healthy. Even though people are concerned about their children’s sleep, schools can’t always start as late as we want. If schools start later, this can affect after school activities such as clubs and sports.
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. Teenagers obviously cannot be learning if they are asleep!
Many kids that attend sports will miss classes so they can play sports. Kids could miss important work and classes to play sports. They could miss important tests. However kids will not get enough sleep if school starts early in the day.
Sleep can be one of the top concerns for a new parent. Babies usually have completely different sleep cycles as adults do. During the daytime, babies get most of their sleep saving their more alert times for the night. A baby who is kicking or is hungry for example every hour at night demands an adults attention, which can cause exhaustion. This can become a challenging task for some adults because our bodies are not physiologically use to being up all night, which in turn makes it difficult working a night shift.
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.
It is widely known that peer pressure, drug and alcohol abuse, and reckless driving are dangers that some teenagers may face; however, there is one major, yet less publicized problem that an increasing number of teenagers are dealing with on a daily basis. Both teenagers and adults suffer from sleep deprivation, but “the problem is most acute among teens” (Richter). Sleep deprivation is being referred to as an epidemic among experts, and it can have drastic effects on a teenager’s physical, mental, and social well-being. “The most recent national poll shows that more than 87 percent of U.S. high school students get far less than the recommended eight to 10 hours of sleep each night” (Richter). Teenagers have “irregular sleep patterns” and they
Have you ever felt sleepy during the day? Everybody needs a good night's rest in order to have a good day. Do you know any middle schoolers who would not love an extra thirty minutes of sleep? Most kids in middle school wish that their schools would start later. Schools at every level in the U.S. are struggling with this debate.
“Sleep is that golden chain that ties health and our bodies together,” (Thomas Dekker), but with most middle and high schools starting before 8:00 am, students aren’t getting the recommended hours of sleep they need to do well in school. School start times should be later for middle and high schoolers for the protection of students’ academic scores, the reduced risk of traffic accidents, and for the protection of student health, although people may argue that parent work schedules may have to change and that the bus schedule change may or will be costly. Middle and high schools should start later for the positive impacts they would have on students and their families. First of all, the start times of middle and high schools should be later for the protection of students’ academic scores. Students who don’t get enough sleep get lower academic and standardized test scores.
What would you do with two more hours of sleep each night? Many students would say that it would help them complete school work and get enough sleep to not be tired throughout the school day. Students who are not well rested show up to class drowsy and not ready to learn, however students who get decent hours of sleep each night come engaged and ready to learn. Schools in the United States should have later start times because it is important for teenagers to get eight to nine hours of sleep at night and people’s bodies are not built to get few hours of sleep.
Many students have a hard time getting up in the morning, due to the extreme times that school starts at. High school start times do not align with the students’ normal sleep clock, causing students to be severely sleep deprived. Most schools start much before 8:15 am causing students to be substantially sleep deprived (Tonn para. 10). High school start times do not align with students’ normal sleep clock, causing students to be severely sleep deprived.
School Should Start Later A recent poll conducted by the National Sleep Foundation found that 60% of children under the age of 18 complained of being tired during the day, according to their parents, and 15% said they fell asleep at school during the year. This proves that kids aren’t getting enough sleep before school. I believe that a later middle school start time would have many beneficial effects on kids. As a result, kids would be more focused in class because they would be getting more sleep, that would lead to better grades, and finally reduced absenteeism.
