SLEEPY DAYS ARE OVER I have a dream said Martin Luther King Jr But why was he able to have a dream It is probably because he was able to get enough sleep unlike the high-schoolers of today Almost every high-schooler in the United States would agree we need more sleep At my high school on Southern Whidbey Island school starts at the unbearable early time of 730 am That is just too early to start school Most high schoolers dont even wake up until lunchtime they simply just sleep through first and second period Take me for example I go to sleep on average 12 oclock ever night wake up around 630 in the morning By the time I get to school I am ready to go to sleep again If you looked at my 1st period grade you would come to the conclusion that there must be something wrong and there is That is why I think that if the start time of high schools were to be changed just half-an-hour later it would benefit all the teachers students and parents in Washington State Scientists have been researching and documenting the sleep patterns of high schoolers for years The have found that there is a gland in our brain called the Pineal Gland The Pineal Gland releases a substance called Melatonin Melatonin when released makes you feel tired and make you want to go to sleep At 730-800pm melatonin is released in ages 7-13 In ages 14-15 melatonin is released at 900-930pm High schoolers upperclassmen melatonin is not released into the blood stream until 1030-1100pm Causing us high schoolers to go to sleep later and wake up earlier Why should little kids go to bed earlier and wake up later than high schoolers The little kids obviously dont need the sleep because they are up early enough to watch the early morning cartoons The administration and government should switch the start times
