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 7:30 am. That is just too early to start school. Most high schoolers don't even wake up until lunchtime; they simply just sleep through first and second period.

In ages 14-15, melatonin is released at 9:00-9:30pm. High schoolers' (upperclassmen) melatonin is not released into the blood stream until 10:30-11:00pm. 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 ...
