Currently ten school day starts at 8:30 and ends at 2:00 which is 5:30 hours kids have to stare at there screens plus home work at the end of the day. This is detrimental to students health it isn’t good for there eyes or there brain the effects of cell phones on the brain still isn’t fully researched. It may also effect students that are without a desk and have to either sit in bed all day or get a chair a damage there back from leaning over. Some of the schools have also taken out physical education which encourages students to get up and active. Some schools have also taken out wellness class which are very important during this difficult times where the kids aren’t able to hang out with there friends also students should be able to be getting out and active sense there are no after school activity’s and for those that are at risk can’t play sports either because of COVID 19. The kids need shorter school days a lot of them are feeling very over whelmed and almost to the point of breakdowns. Last year the kids had very shorter periods of 25 minutes which was a little too short but u think that if we increase it from 25 to 30 or 35 I think it will be very beneficial to students and teachers as well. Some teachers who are teaching from home also have to look after there kids and if there are less distractions during class because the days are shorter I think the teachers and the kids would really appreciate it.
