We, the students at Kealakehe high school, demand that we get shorter time for classes, so we can have better mental health, more time to spend with family, and lastly less stress for our students.

Shortening classes for school is critical to every community because every parent wants their child to succeed and learn in school, but how can students do that if they have a lot of stress and bad mental health? Studies have shown that 5 percent of students do not complete their education due to psychiatric disorders. Sounds small right? Well think again as another study shows that nearly 4.30 million students would have graduated from college if they weren’t experiencing such disorders, also studies show that nearly 80 percent of students say that they are stressed. My solution will be to lower the time for school days so that students will be able to relax/not feel stressed out, and ultimately have better mental health as well. Parents, if you're worried that the relaxing shorter school days will make students sort of slack off worry no more! Studies have shown that adjusting school schedules so that they will start later on in the day or end earlier, significantly increases achievement for high schoolers. So join our movement for creating change in the school schedule that will not stop until we bring change!
