Opinion: Start school one hour later
MAR 12, 2017

Opinion: Start school one hour later

There would be great benefits in starting school one hour later. I mean doesn’t everyone get tired? Teachers need extra time! And students! This would be life changing! I think school should start one hour later! Are you on my side or not?

These are my reasons why it would be the best thought for schools to start later. First, it would give families time to get their brains active and going. After that, studies have shown that kids getting extra sleep is important. Sleeping increases learning, kids attention span and creates less health problems. I predict that there would be no more sleepy excuses or yawning noises with this idea. Next, you just won’t be in such a rush all the time. You have time to do all the things like brush your teeth, take a shower, pack lunch, and eat breakfast. After all, breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Plus taking showers is necessary so you’re not smelly and dirty. If you’re like me, you pack your lunch and don’t eat school lunch. Giving families one extra hour in the morning is a great idea.
