Schools starting later in the day

Should schools starts later in the morning?

Why should schools start later in the morning?

Research shows that Teens or adolescents have a sleep and wake up pattern. Teenage students have been known to stay up at night and wake up later in the morning. The time that school starts interrupts and interferes with our pattern. Now I strongly agree that us students aren't fully awake until 10:00 am. We don't really understand anything from 1st period to 2nd period.

Every week we get sent home with homework

We always get homework from classes. I don't think our teachers talk with each other and spread out our homework. That being said, we stay up til 12:00 or 1:00 am . Then you guys question why we are so tired in your classes.

Examples of this.

The Stats

Statistics say that if school were to start later in the morning , it would improve our adolescent health and academic life. Most Middle schools start between 8:00 or 9:00 am. That's way to early for us. We don't get enough sleep because we stay for tutoring , games, service hours and we have a life after school. Some of us get home by 6:00 eat by 6;30 take showers , get clothes out for the next day do any chores and then by 9:00 , we are still up because we still have to do homework. And we eventually have to go to sleep but we try to do as much as we can. Some teachers don't even give us time to explain or don't want to hear any excuses.

Closing

I guess what i'm trying to say s that we need school to start later in the morning because our brain isn't active early and we don't get enough sleep . I hope you guys look into this for our future children to enjoy their sleep.
