Students worry more about getting ready and finding a way to school. It is rare that a person will take the time to wake up extra early just to get a meal in their diet before school. These things are often their last priority. Unfortunately, there is not time to eat because there is hardly even time to sleep every night and teens are not going to wake up any earlier just for food. “Insufficient sleep in teens has been linked to an increase in car accidents, substance abuse, suicide attempts, depression, even criminal activity” (NEA Today).
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.
In solution, we can relieve students of sleep deprivation by pushing the start times forward. This will give students a higher chance of getting the eight and a half to nine and a half hours of sleep doctors recommend. Others may think children should be the ones changing their sleeping schedule earlier to meet the required time to show up at school. However, it is understood that students can be sleeping earlier as well to avoid the effects of sleep deprivation, but it had already been shown scientifically that students tend to stay up late. Furthermore, there are many other factors that interfere with the time kids go to sleep.
We would also have time to get breakfast which some of us don’t most of the time. The school will even have less tardy excuses since the students will have more than enough time to get ready. I just stated a few reasons why school should start later, but there are many more. The main reasons why school should start later are because of one’s health and it’s better for students’ concentration in class. If this happened you could sleep in longer on a Monday
The way starting school later could benefit the students health is one it allows the teen to get more sleep. Statistics show that when teens don't get enough sleep there's higher rates of obesity and depression. Many students complain of not having enough time to eat breakfast and by starting later it gives them time to eat. It's important for students to eat breakfast because of their growing bodies and brain, and food helps to fuel their bodies and brains which helps students gain energy to do their best in school.The right amount of sleep that students should
Usually, teenagers wake up at the very last few minutes before school starts and they get driven to school. The unlucky few who have to walk have to get up even earlier to do their basic morning routine. This can also apply to teachers who have to get to school earlier to prepare for their class. With a later start, teenagers can do more things in their morning routine. They can make a balanced breakfast that can last them through most of the day or have more time to clean themselves up before school.
Therefore, it takes time away from learning. I believe classes both should and should not start later in the day because when teenagers wake up early, it messes with their biological clocks, many teenagers participate in extracurricular activities after school, and teenagers would have more mental focus going to school later in the day. First of all, when teens wake up early it messes with their biological clocks. After teens hit a certain age something happens with their biological clock. Many teens that would fall asleep early now go to bed later in the night.
Would you want a student going to class half asleep? Lots of kids don't do well in school because they are not very well rested, and starting school later in the day could prevent that from happening. Health could be at risk if kids went to school too early because they wouldn’t have enough time to sleep which would most likely disturb their immune system. If schools started later, than more kids would show up and they would be more attentive which would lead to better grades. I believe schools should start later in the day because it gives kids more time to sleep, helps adolescents perform academically better, and can improve a youth’s health.
Does your child or student never want to get up in the morning? It probably because they start school way too early and don’t get enough sleep at night to be ready for the next day. Many children and students feel as if they start school way too early. School usually starts at 8 or maybe even 8:30 A.M. I do agree that school does start pretty early.
Some college students will eat alone 1,000 calories for breakfast. So colleges should have more healthier food plans and healthier food choices. A lot of freshman kids tend to go crazy when they get to college. The reason why I address that is because when your parents don’t let you party at home, you just wanna party the whole time you’re at college. It’s not all the parents fault, it’s some of the college’s fault.
