Should School Time Change?

Why School Time Should Not Be Changed?

I think school time should not be changed. I say this because, schools would have to delay both high school times and elementary school times or get additional buses to drive the elementary school students. This would make it difficult for students to participate and still have enough time to study, finish homework, participate in social activities, and still get to bed at a decent hour. It interferes with parent work schedules. I know this because, most parents work in the morning till the afternoon.

If teens got everything changed that they wanted they would never sleep. Most teenagers ranging from 15+ years old only need about 7 hours of sleep. Students can't manage to wake up and be ready to start their day when told doesn't mean the whole school should just move up their start times.

For the first time, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is urging education policymakers to start middle- and high-school classes later in the morning. In more than 40 states, at least 75 percent of public schools start earlier than 8:30 a.m.. “Getting enough sleep is important for students’ health, safety, and academic performance,”
