Essay Contest

Should the School Day Start Later?


Both the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Center for Disease Control recommend that schools start later in the day - 8:30 am or later to be exact. In part, this is because recent research has shown that when students sleep more, they experience many benefits including better grades, improved physical and mental health, and even fewer car crashes. Some schools have moved their start times later and have seen other positive results too, including decreased tardiness and attendance issues. However, there are also disadvantages to shifting when schools start. A later start time means school ends later in the day, which can decrease the amount of time students have for homework, extracurricular or community activities and family time. In addition, a later start time does not guarantee that students will actually sleep more, and many argue that learning time management is an essential skill for students about to enter college or the workforce. There are also logistical challenges to consider, including bus schedules, the cost to schools and districts, the inconvenience to families, and even safety concerns like students walking home in the dark. The debate about school start times has been heating up this year, and LegiSchool wants to hear from you. Should the school day start later? How would this affect you and your peers?
