Wake County Public High Schools begin at 7:25am. Although 7am might not seem that early, most students are forced to wake up between 4:30-6am in order to get to school on time. This could be depending on the time the bus arrives, or how far away the student lives from school. Students are extremely sleep deprived. This is a huge problem, not only for students, but for parents as well as the school. The amount of sleep teens get during the school week directly impacts the average attendance of students. Studies show that sleep majorly affects teen’s learning abilities, which is majorly affecting students’ grades. Teens who lack sleep are more likely to develop or experience worsening symptoms of depression, and anxiety disorders, as well as a multitude of health risks. I believe that by pushing back the schools start time, even if just by an hour, will significantly affect the students’ overall grades, attendance, health, happiness, as well as success.
