In this article, it talks about how to protect kids from crazy drivers. One of the main reasons is to go on the road when it's safest and the earlier the better, so that is why it's good to have an early start time. Bus drivers will be safer as well as high schoolers who drive themselves. Bias-no. Help- early start time.
In the article, it talks about how good sleeping patterns can help you in your everyday life. If students walk up and go to bed at about the same times on school days and weekend days, they will not be as tired, and will excel better than others. No teen is going to walk up at 5 am on weekends, which is what they have to do on schooldays, so a later start time would be better for everyone. No bias- help for later school start time.
In the article, it states that an average teen can get up to 10 hours of homework per week. Kids want to do more activities but they have not enough time. (Earlier school start time would allow more time for other activities.) Kids can't sleep because they are stressed about all their homework and the less sleep you get, the more chance for danger. With the earlier start time, you can finish your school day earlier and be able to finish homework earlier and get to sleep earlier. It is biased because the author is talking about her own daughter's experience, however, it will be useful for it starting earlier.
In this article, it states that teens that get less than 7 ours of sleep due to staying up late doing homework and getting up early for school, are more involved with deadly actions. Those teens are more likely to do things like text while driving, drink while driving, not wearing a seatbelt, not wearing a helmet, and being in a car with someone who is drinking. Little sleep results in poor decision making, which is why these things happen. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that schools start no earlier than 8:30 a.m. so that teens can get the recommended 8.5 to 9.5 hours of sleep a night. "Think about this: If you have to be at school at 7:40 a.m., and you have a 30-minute commute and need at least 30 minutes to have breakfast, shower and get out the door, you must be up at 6:40 a.m. at the latest. If you want to get the recommended 8.5 to 9.5 hours of sleep, you need to be in bed between 9:10 p.m. and 10:10 p.m. Do you know any teens who go to bed that early?" (Wallace). The university of Minnesota states that schools with a later start time do better at tests and exams. There doesn't seem to be any bias, however, the article only states the one side. It would be very useful for saying we should sleep in
In this article, it states how a good amount of sleep, is just as important as exercising. Sleeping in, takes out over $100 billion of the nation's economy. "Sleep is part of good health, as important as nutrition and exercise to overall well-being," asserted Dr. Rafael Pelayo, a Stanford neurologist who interprets the brain activity of sleepers and studies their snoozing patterns. Slumber difficulties also can go hand-in-hand with weight and blood pressure problems. There doesn't seem to be much bias, there is only one side. This would be useful for saying how important sleep is.
