Kaylin I started this petition to School systems

This change has been talked about constantly, but iv'e never seen anything been done. School systems have't been updated since the start, and its damaging to the oncoming and current students. The School System from acceptance of disabilities and mental health needs to the mental effect of the strenuous amounts of homework given to students. I am the one of many whose mental health status has worsened due to the poor School System. Bullying, harassment, and abuse is never taken as seriously as it should in schools. Not enough is done to prevent these issues from occurring or the proper support from adults at school such as teachers or councilors. Not enough schools are fit to take on the increase in mental health cases in students. The school system needs some change to accommodate the current life expecations teachers expect everyone to live up to. For example, starting schools later. Neuroscientists prove that the brain isn't fully engadged till 9-10 am in the morning. Most schools in 45 states report 75-100 percent of schools start before 8:30. Not to mention how early some students wake up to get ready. High school students are assigned 3.5 hours of homework on a daily average. Middle school averaging at 3.2 hours per night, and k-5 getting that amount of homework time for an entire week (2.9 per week). Students end school around 3:00 pm on average. With an average of 3 hours of homework a day,1 hour average of dinner,2 hour average of extra-ciricular activities encouraged by school to participate in,1 hour average of studying for tests, with school ending at 3:00 pm the average students is occupied till 10:00 pm. With school starting at 8:30, most students wake up around 6 to prepare for school. Kids are recommended at least 8 hours of sleep. With the expectations of school, it can barley be managed. We need a change in systems! Teenagers are feeling more depression and anxiety, and coincidently homework time has been increasing. I would also like to mention the sexist dress codes in many school in America. Girls are targeted in dress codes. Girls shouldn't be expected to wear clothing that covers body parts they cannot control. A girl shouldn't be punished for wearing a tank-top on a 90 degree plus day at school just because of her body. If anybody at school is sexulized, no matter clothing or body type, should be punished. Its not one's clothing fault. American school systems need a major change! So many kids are struggling, and growing up in a school system that feels like a factory or jail. 83% of stress on kids come from school. Lets make a change!
