Capital Region High Schools May be Pushing Back Start Time
So for some school districts around the capital region, this could most certainly become a reality. Kids will be able to sleep in.
Man, how awesome would that have been for you growing up. We all had to endure it. We all had to wake up early and get into school still groggy. You know what? I think we turned out just fine. I'm not against this decision as I see the positives, but I don't think this is something that absolutely needs to happen.
My first job out of high school required me to be into work at 7 a.m. This meant at the latest I needed to be awake at 6 a.m. With that said, high school prepared me quite well for that.
But yeah. Many students will argue that they aren't able to focus in class due to the early start time. I can see that. But what do you think? Should the start time be pushed back or should everything just remain the exact same?
