Omri Shoshan started this petition to Public School Students

Science has shown that more sleep correlates to better mental and physical performance in general. Science also proves that teenagers need AT LEAST 8 hours of sleep, and are recommended about 10 hours. Schools starting early has made many issues for many students, including me. Starting school later will result in more engaged and happier students. For students who wake up generally early, this time could be used to finish any work, or simply help out around the house or participate in extracurricular activities. This could really help, because some students have many extracurricular activities and don’t get home until it is really late. They then have to stay up past midnight to finish their work. The next day (or I should say later that day) when they wake up, they chug down cups and cups of coffee because they are so sleep-deprived, and hope that it will keep them awake throughout the day. As a result, they pay attention less in class, do bad work, and barely learn the material. This has become an epidemic among almost every teenager.

Making the time that school starts later doesn’t mean making the time it ends later however. This was made to end the problems of starting school early, and extending the school day would only bring head-aching problems back. We don’t need another failed student, another sleep-deprived student, another over-caffeinated student, or another depressed student. Starting school at 10:30 would easily end this problem. By signing this petition, this solution may be brought into a larger light.
