Many teenage high school students are tired during the school day, castrating them from their studies. Which is one of the many good reasons in which the starting time Of school should be later in the day. Some people may say that the body does not fully function until about 9:AMA, however to back this up studies have suggested that with the average adolescent this is a true fact. Many schools in America already use the suggested later arrival time, so their students can be ready to learn when they arrive at school.
Another thing that everyone knows or remembers about high school is all of the homework hat needs to be done for next class. Plus projects that are due, studying for tests and exams and the time you need to actually have a life outside school. Most students even have so much work that they will stay up all night just to get it done. When needing a minimum of 9 hours of sleep as a teenager, getting up at 7 in order to get ready for school is just not enough time. It is easy to think that students will just put it off even more.
Students even sleep during class because they are that tired. Remember that sleep is not something you can aka yourself not want. Throwing water on your face, listening to loud music, or taking a shower cannot make your bodies craving for sleep disappear. There are also risks involved with not getting enough sleep. Most people will be very sleepy and drowsy during the day, and they may encounter mood and behavioral problems and even increase there vulnerability to drugs and alcohol. These things could also develop more into serious sleeping disorders.
Experts advise to not read or watch television shows when unwinding from a ay at school or work. Mary Sarandon of Brown University’s School of Medicine even believes that students do not need anymore sleep than adults do, but Sarandon still recommends that the school start time should be later in the daytime. The average high school student just needs a little slack every once in a while and they need a way to cope with being a teen. The average teenager needs more sleep. It IS necessary that we receive these demands for the safety, well-being, and pleasure of the community as a whole.
