Why school start times should stay the sameMade by: Ben Rost
Do you hit snooze on your alarm in the morning? i do. more sleep would be nice but why not just get the day over with to have time for other things?
Average School start times around the US are 7:40-8:00AM
If school starts later not all parents will be able to take their kids to school
Bus routes & hours would have to be changed, causing problems in budget and traffic
Younger children waiting for buses without supervision is dangerous
26 Million kids take the bus to school in the US
After school ACTIVITIES/sports
Later start times would cause later release times
Sport practices would last later into the evening or be shortened
Not enough time for homework or other things to do in the evening
After school students wont be able to have credible hours if school lastes longer
Some teachers have after school jobs as well to make extra money
If school were to go later into the evening students and even teachers wouldn't be able to get hours many sometimes need.
I DO AGREE THAT MORE SLEEP WOULD BE GREAT, GETTING UP IN THE MORNING IS HARD BUT I DO BELIEVE THAT GETTING THE DAY OVER WITH IS THE WAY TO GO. It is students RESPONSIBILITY to be present to school and absences could increase if no transportation to school.
More sleep would be great but think about all the problems later start times will cause
Think about kids that have after school jobs or even teachers that cant get credible hours
Family time at the end of the day is important for your health
After school activities or sports shouldn't last until dark or dinner time.
