Should school begin later in the morning and end later in the day?

  • Start school later

    Kids are always tired when they wake up for school, which causes them to fall asleep in class and miss lessons that they may need in the future for tests. Sure, they would get out of school later and have less time to do their homework, (especially for people who play sports) but sleep is very important to teens.

  • We definitely need more sleep.

    I don't know about other schools in other parts of the world. But for me, my school starts at 7:45AM and it ends at 5PM. But if you take part in the extra curriculum classes (basketball, taekwondo, ping pong) then it ends at 6PM. Do you know how tiring this is? I spend more than 10 hours in school each day, not to mention, Saturday, another 4-5 hours for computer, music, and traditional dance. THEN, we, basketball players, have practice for another 2 hours at 3-5PM, so to not burden my parents, i decided to stay in school till practice starts. We only have ONE FULL DAY OFF.
    I can't blame the school for this, because I know those who are giving out opinions before I did, studies one language. English.
    While I have to study 3 languages in one day each day.
    But no matter what, we are all tired.

  • It prepares them, and gives them a day to enjoy, and helps the parent.

    1) In life the majority of jobs have positions that open up before 7-8 AM. Will all students grow up to have these positions? No. But we can't be sure, thus we must prepare as best we can. If the children wake up at, say, 10 for school, then it will be harder to prepare if they suddenly obtain a job which would require of them that they get up at 6 AM (as did mine and my best friends). IT generally helps to get the kid used to the 7-3 schedule sooner, rather then later.

    2) Lets say we get up at 9-10 for school, then given the standard 7 hour day, we will arrive at home at roughly 4-5 PM. By this point there's little remaining of the actually daylight, meaning that the great majority of the childs day (after, say, 10 PM, you may still be awake, but that day's over and your options are limited on what you can do). Lets say the child still wakes up at 6-7 AM, this would technically mean he still had the same total amount of free time, right? Well that doesn't matter in the end, because the value of the hours diminish. Being so early, when others are still asleep, the kid/teenagers options for those 2-3 hours are minimal. And the value of things such as time are cut drastically when divided. 7 hours of free time put together are greater in value to even 8 hours if the 8 hours are divided in two. So if the person wakes up early anyways, why not just go to school, and have as much daylight left to enjoy as possible in the afternoon.

    3) Many parents get up at 6-7, not necessarily for work, but rather to get started on the day in general. But for a great majority of them, ultimately it is for work. So for the kid to be up and at school early would benefit the parent greatly as that parent can't be there at 9-10 to get the child ready (even if the child is actually a teenager, the parent still generally must make sure the person is ready).

    Are there benefits to starting later? Possibly, but ultimately I don't believe they outweigh the benefits are staying at our present situation. Especially not enough so to warrant uprooting the system. There is some credentials to having school happen in the afternoon though. But that wasn't the question, and ultimately even that is on shaky grounds.

  • Let the kids enjoy their day

    If school began later in the day by the time they get home which would be around 3-4 p:m usually and kids won't have very much time to participate in any other after school activities, sports, having time with their family or even doing something they simply enjoy. Lots of jobs nowadays require you to wake up around 6:30 am. If kids get up around 10:00 when they go to school, so when they go to work and their job requires them to get up around 6-7 am it won't work out. Kids need free time as well, even if it is playing video games kids need free time or they may get stressed and have a hard time.

  • Not enough time!

    If a grade 8 student started school at 10pm, by the end of the day, they would feel rushed and overwhelmed with the extra curricular and maybe jobs that they have after "school time". It would be just all over the place and no time to learn the curricular they need!

  • School should start earlier

    At least for high-school age students, I think kids should go to school from 6-12 so they can have afternoons and evenings to obtain part-time jobs, get homework done, or serve their community in other ways. It opens the doors to more outside learning and extracurricular activities. Kids already have it too easy. Going to school a little earlier wouldn't hurt.

  • Too much of the day is lost

    If school began later and then finished later there would not be the time in the afternoon for other important activities like interaction with others, sport and physical activities, participating in cultural activities and being a part of clubs and teams, household chores, religious instruction and positive family interaction. This would mean many essential life skills would not be learned.

  • School is important

    Going to school is fun, making friends and studying for your future. But going to school at what time? When you imagine going to school so late and coming back home late, you will be so stressed because you won’t have enough time to do your homework and sleep. Schools think it should start later in the morning and end later in the day, where some people think that it should not, now this give schools stress whether this should stand or be changed. We believe that school should not start later in the morning and end later in the day.
