Many studies have shown that the brains of people between puberty and adulthood  continue making melatonin until 8 am. After you stop making the melatonin you then have around 30 minutes for it to dissipate. Your body makes caffeine, but that only starts to reach a height where it makes you awake 60 minutes after you stop the melatonin dissipates. This is the point at which you are able to take in complex ideas and process them thoroughly.

I propose that we should not have difficult classes such as math and history before 9:00, this way the students have a higher probability of passing the class. If they have a higher probability of passing more of our students will be have more opportunities after high school. Classes that do not take as much brain power, such as art, music, pe, or Computer classes should be the first classes of the day instead. This will give the students brain time to wake up while they are still learning. The job of the school and teachers is to give the students what they need to become great adults. How are they supposed to do that when we are giving them the information at the wrong time and essentially ignoring their needs.

If we keep doing things the way that we are the every-one of the youth in our schools will not be able to succeed in life, we will be cursing them to a life in poverty. Please join me in protecting the minds of our youth today and sign this petition.
