In conclusion, high schools should keep the time to start and end school the way it is. It is not worth it if students comes back from school later in the afternoon and doesn’t know what to do before dark comes. Even if they do know what they’re gonna do like probably go to work, do after school activities, and activities outside from home. The whole school gets affected because for teachers who have a young child they won’t be able to do anything they want before their child comes home from school. So if everyone get’s a negative affect by this then it’s truly not worth the money to change the
Do you think the school board should add one hour and thirty minutes to the school day? I think the school board should not add one and a half hour to school, because it costs the school money, there would be less time for studying and homework and other activities, plus less social life.
If an hour and half of school were added every day, students would miss after school activities. Students will miss the fun extracurricular activities. and students won’t get the exercise they need.
The one reason why schools should stay at the same times is because Students who participate in sports, or other extracurricular activities typically meet for several hours after school. If school times are later, that means that these activities would continue later on in the day. This would make it
First, schools should not change their start times because it helps parents as well. One reason how that supports my claim is older kids can help younger children. When kids in middle and high school get home before their parents so they
School lunches have been getting shorter since 2009 in many places in the US. Students academics have been decreasing also since the school lunch times have been getting shorter. School lunches should be at least 1 hour long to give students enough time to eat an healthy meal and to get enough time to burn off energy.
Should school lunches be longer? According to The American Academy of Pediatrics a child should be able to have at least 20 minutes for lunch. But that means 20 minutes to actually sit down and eat — excluding time waiting in line or walking from class to cafeteria. It is a day-to-day occurrence hearing students complaining that the food is cold, having to shove the food down in order to eat everything on the tray, and my favorite is complaints on how food was thrown away since the bells have already rung. Why is this happening? How can they justify taking nutrition away for more instructional time? Multiple students go home after school and raid the refrigerator or cupboards grazing for food. Interesting enough most of the students will choose
Being a High schooler in today's society is hard, especially when you dread getting up at 6 o’clock (or earlier) every morning, and pressing snooze so many times to the point where you have to miss out on breakfast and rush to school. If school started 30 minutes to an hour later every day, it would help students in plenty of ways: alertness, better test scores, and teachers would also enjoy it because students would be more responsive. There would be some extra costs for bussing, though. Hudsonville High school should definitely look into and consider later start times, for it would benefit both the students and teachers.
Redondo Beach Unified school district should implement that all schools in the district need start an hour later. 60% of children under the age of 18 complained to their parents about being tired, and 15% said they fell asleep during
There is No Need to Alter the School Start Time It has been talked about for decades, that students are not getting enough sleep. Due to this statement, some people believe changing the school start time would address the issue. I believe that altering the school start time will actually do more harm than good. Transportation, sports, and lives of parents would be negatively affected by a later school start time.
When I say time, I mean students getting to school on time, classes starting on time and transition time between classes. For some classes there is about a 10 minute gap between when class actually starts and when class is supposed to start according to the schedule. This leaves a lot of “free time” in between certain classes or inside of a classroom without nothing going on because the teacher has not started instructional time. As a student I love it, but as a principle I would feel as though the school is losing productivity with a teacher just sitting in another room or not even being there at all while the students loiter or just aimlessly wonder through the hallways or sit in front of the door. Another thing I find to be interesting is how some students leave during lunch to make sure they get to class on time while the teacher is still down the hill in the main building, I don’t take that class but what do the students do while they are up there and their teacher is down here? Do they go into the class room and just sit up there by themselves? Or do they do the same thing some of the students in the RVEC building do and just sit outside door. As a student I don’t know what goes on like that, but as a principle I would think that is another way lunch time transitions can be better managed so that the students and teachers are where they need to be when class needs to
The students of this generation appear to be a bunch of lazy, depressed, unenergetic zombies, but is this entirely their fault? After a considerable amount of investigating it appears as if their lack of energy could be due to sleep deprivation resulting from early school start times. When later school times have been compared to those schools that start earlier, there are significant changes in the behaviors and results that students emit in a school environment. Schools should have a later start time that is better suited to the biological needs of adolescents as a way to aid them in achieving a higher quality education.
Some people think that we should have an 8 hour school day. Having a longer school could help
Have you ever thought that recess should be longer? Instead of having a 15-minute recess, students should have a longer time to move. I think that school should have a long recess for children at every age.
Lunch Time The students of Snow Canyon Middle School desperately need there time away from school. To unwind from tests, teachers, school work, and learning. All those subjects are very stressful in a young teenager’s life. Our lunch hour is the only hour from 8:00 a.m. to 2:50 p.m. that we
