Should Schools Start Later? By Tanzil momin

Close your eyes and imagine you wake up in the middle of the night and you think it's only 12 am but turns out your alarm starts to ring just when your falling back asleep! "Time to go to school honey" says your mom! So should schools start later or not? Yes i think they should let me tell you why. Some kids have negative attitudes when they come to school because they either have a test the next day or a essay due and had to stay up late. Another reason is that many kids have after school activities that they also have to focus on. There's sports like.... volleyball, soccer, swimming and basketball. Many scientists have proved that kids should always have a positive attitude and a positive way for communication. Some parents want there kids to focus in class and on outdoor activities but it just seems to be too hard. Most kids are totally fine with waking up at 6:30 or 5:45 I honestly am not! According to parents kid's school's should start at normal times like they do now because then the schools will end later in the day and most parents won't have time during the evening's just because they work in offices/companies. I have read many articles from different psychologists, scientists, teachers and parents saying they would prefer that schools start later in the day! Now before you get into your different emotions let me tell you that I think school's should start later but end at the same time there ending now. Pediatrics say kids should have at least 8.5 to 9.5 hours of sleep in there daily life's! In more than 40 states, at least 75 percent of public schools start earlier than 8:30 a.m however not getting enough sleep can cause depression, attendance issues and late tardy's. So now you tell me should schools start later or not?
