What's the point of getting up early if half the students are asleep by first period anyway?? I --And my friends -- are all Night Owls. None of us like mornings; we're all nicer when we have more sleep. I work better.
The hardest classes for me, I gotta say, are 1st, 9th, and 10th. In the mornings, I'm just waking up, and since Im so tired from the first periods, during the last ones i fall asleep and therefore get awful grades.
If it started later, I would get better grades. I'm sure of it.
And dont just tell me to go to sleep earlier. I cant fall asleep till like midnight. I mean, seriously. Do you really think i just pass out at 'bedtime'??

I think it should start later. but not that late. you dont wanna cut school activities. maybe only an hour can make a difference in grades. take it into consideration...

If teenagers started school later in the morning this would give them time to recover from there hangovers. and give them time to eat food and such.

no one of the other resons to why teenagers sleep longer is because of their biologicalRhythm or internal clock but just like normal clocks you can set the time on it it's just harder
