Each and everyday children are forced to begin school early in the morning which potentially has an effect on their alertness and their ability to work efficiently throughout the day as they are not given a chance to fully overcome their tiredness effecting their standard of work which could typically be achieved if they were to begin at a reasonable time which would allow for them to prepare physically and mentally for the school day ahead.

Firstly thanks to Con for keeping the argument simple and straight. I hope, it would end up with a satisfied conclusion.

My Stance as Pro: Schools should begin early in the morning.

My Arguments as Pro (in negation of Con's Argument):

1. Starting the day earlier in the morning is psychologically more satisfactory. Such as students would be able to end the school earlier in the day and thus they would be able to plan their other affairs for the rest of the day (for their enjoyment too).
2. Starting the school late doesn't necessarily mean that tiredness is gone and students have taken their proper rest to be fresh. Rather they can adjust their routine where they shift their resting time to night, instead of relying on late school timing.
3. Thirdly, early school timing is not defined here. So generalizing suggests that "early" would be as acceptable as to make the family awaken and for the students to get up much earlier to be fresh. (It hardly takes 1/2 hour usually)

Conclusion: Problem isn't the earlier timing but the time management to adjust health care, to gather the energy.

Well even though it is said to be more physiologically satisfying its like anything its in the mind therefore some people could feel more physiologically satisfied with getting up later and the way technology has came about the body's clock is changing its time of routine with the majority of children/teens staying up later in the evening and getting up later in the morning, which means they would work more effectively if they were to begin later in the morning and schools were to take into consideration how times are changing as sleep is the most crucial thing to ensure students preform to the best of their ability.

Thanks Con for prompt reply.

Con-(some people could feel more physiologically satisfied with getting up later)

Rebuttal: Ok. But doesn't guarantee they would still enjoy the school or they would be fresh. As late school timing would just shift the schedule, not the habit of getting up late. And we see it in routine, those who don't manage to be punctual/regular and don't value the time, they're always late and have lame excuses for their laziness.

Con-(and the way technology has came about the body's clock is changing its time of routine with the majority of children/teens staying up later in the evening and getting up later in the morning, which means they would work more effectively if they were to begin later in the morning and schools were to take into consideration how times are changing as sleep is the most crucial thing to ensure students perform to the best of their ability.)

Rebuttal: It's more related to lifestyle change than the technology factor. I agree lifestyle (due to technological advancements too) has been changed that children are more inclined to staying up later in night (busy with their gadgets). But if the school would be at late timings, it would assist their thought and make them careless. They'd not bother to get a early (proper) sleep, rather they would intentionally stay out of bed late night (because their school is late in morning). Thus they'd not be able to complete the rest and sleep as much as required.

We have the example of those, who don't manage their time but rely on late timings. They're late/lazy even in the late shift of University class. If the class is at 9:00 am, people/children would shift their sleeping schedule to 2am-8am that was before 10pm-6am (for instance). Thus they would keep longing at 8am that alas class should have been at 10am. No difference in their attitude.

Supporting Argument of Pro: School should be early in the morning because such as children would be adjusting their routine as everyone else in the society is doing, giving them the coherence and sense of integrity in the society. Otherwise people would be eating lunch and they'd be taking class or getting their notes. People would be enjoying play games in ground at 4pm and they'd be eating food. And after the sun set they'd like to play soccer. Every thing disturbed.

Conclusion: Late school timing isn't the solution to fulfill the sleep need, but a proper time management. Because day is to work and night is to rest. If we change the natural pattern, we're disturbing the natural life.
