  • Yes i think we should start school later

    We should start school later because it would be best for middle school students and high school students because it would be healthier for them. Also we should start school later because scientist say that are brain is not fully functional until 10:00, and these are the reasons i think we should start school later.

  • Most definitely! The amount of sleep isn't the main problem.

    Yes, students need more sleep, but that is the main problem. People saying no because they would stay up have an irrelevant argument. The problem is that waking up at 6:00 throws us off our sleep patterns. The average teenager goes to bet at 11 and wakes up at 9. Our bodies don't work at 6 in the morning in the teen years.

  • Lots of rest

    Sleep is very important. Getting up later in the morning is important. Kids need to eat breakfast in the mourning. So that they have plenty of energy. Kids will sleep in class and get in trouble. This debate is very important. Thanks for saying yes to getting more sleep. :)

  • Absolutely NOT Expectable.

    Most teens go to sleep late, but that's their fault. I am a student with a little brother in elementary school, and his time starts later and ends earlier. If school started later there would be a rush to get to school and a lot of time waiting after, especially with after school programs. People are always saying how kids get bad grades because they're tired and not paying attention, but that doesn't actually happen. Even though there's more people who say that school should later, but there's more EVIDENCE that it shouldn't.

  • Yes they should

    I belive school should start later b/c most teens don't go to bed early an stay up late. If school were to start later teens would get more sleep an wont be tired in the morning. If students are tired in the morning then there brains aren't functioning which means they aren't learning anything the teacher may be saying or teaching. Then when it comes to a test the students wont be ready an will fail. This wont be good on there grades on their report cards. If students were to go to school later then they would be wide awake in school will hear everything the teacher is saying an will be ready for there est.

  • We need sleep

    15% of teens fall asleep because of being sleep deprived during the school day. 60% ay to be sleep deprived during the day. We get tired. Waking up at 5:30 to catch the bus is hard on ourselves. But naturally our bodie want to stay up late so getting the right amount of sleep depends on how late we leep in.

  • You will be tired

    So normally you have to go to school at 8:30 and you are really tired when you wake up so you need more rest and then you can be good for school for another day. Personally i think school should start around 9:30 or 9:15. This is just my opinion

  • Should school begin at a later time?

    Yes because you need to get a good sleep before going to school. Sometimes kids are really tired and they fall asleep in class then they don't hear what is going on and then they'll do bad on a test. So I think that schools should start at a different time in the morning because you get very tired.

  • School Should Start Later

    Kids need more sleep or they will become sleep deprived and you can get less concentration, and more risk for stroke and less concentration. It does not only affect learning, some sports teams have not won a game in the season because they are tired and can not focus well.

  • School Should Absolutely NOT Start Later.

    Most teens go to sleep late and are tired in the morning, but that's their fault. I am a student and have a little brother in elementary school. His school starts after mine and ends before. My parents have to wait some time for my brothers school to start. If school stared later, there would be a rush to get us both to school and even more waiting after, especially with after school programs. More people think school should start later, but there's more evidence that it shouldn't.

  • Giving that I'm a school student and hate waking up for school I vote NO!!!!!!!

    More than 80% of school students hate waking up for school. In addition, students should be able to sleep in before school. In the article titled “Hitting the Snooze Button” by Barbara Kantrowitz and Karen Springen discuss wheather or not schools should start later. I think the start time should stay the same. However, changing the schools start time to later will not decrease the amount of tardies. The article shows that when they experimented with changing the schools start time to later and the schools end time switched to later. The schools start time should not be switched to later because if students wake up later they will go to sleep later. There will be less time for kids to do homework after school. Also it should not be later because if a middle school student had too much homework and long term projects due they would not be able to work on them and grades would go down. There are those who believe the schools start time should be later because they believe that its hard ad tiring to wake up so early in the morning. However, it has been shown that only pre-school- 1st grade students have a hard time waking up for school. In conclusion, the schools start time should not be switched to later, the schools start time should stay the same. For example, when the schools start time was later before there were more tardies. Also there were many students that were late for afterschool practice who were stressed out, and didn’t get their homework in and done on thime which lead to more lower grades. So, petition against the district office and school board from changing the start time to later.

  • It would be inconvenient

    Most parents have to be at work at 8 am so if school start later in the day parents would not be able to drop off their children at school on the way to work. Therefore, starting school at a later time is inconvenient for working parents or the students guardian

  • Schools should stay the same

    Kids have after school activities that start at 4:00 and sports for there activity of the day. Kids would go to bed later and get up early just party and do stuff with there friends . Most parents days start at 8 and wouldn't be able to take them to the bus stop

  • Schools should not start earlier

    Students would get exactly the same amount of sleep, because they would just go to bed later. Also, parents that have to take children to bus stops or to school, and they have to get to work at a certain time. With a later school start time, parents will not be able to get to work on time. All in all, an earlier school start time is a terrible idea.

  • Because it is actually the teen/child's fault.

    Even if the school start time is pushed back, the average adolescent will still be doing the same routine in the same amount of time they would have done before. Also, some say you will be getting more sleep. How will you be getting more sleep when you are still staying up late and still continuing the same routine? Consider this.

  • U don't need sleep

    If we got more sleep we would have less time to do are homework. And you could go to bed earlier u dumdums you done need to go to bed at 12:00 in the morning. Plus if you where smart enough you would know that would cut out are on study time which would could ruin are testing grades.

  • Because it messes with some people's work schedule.

    It messes with work schedules of people that drive kids to school and have a job at the same time. Some people do start later, but only because they have to. I don't know if they like it or not, but I wouldn't and my mom and dad have a job.
