My unpopular opinion is that there is no reason teenagers shouldn’t have to get up and go to school at 7am. Isn’t high school trying to prepare you for work and college?
I have to get up at 6 and work until 4 you can get up at 7 and go to school until 2.
People are dying from issues we can fix and we are worried about teenagers sleeping an extra fucking hour. Ugh.
this is fair to a point, though it is important to acknowledge that teenagers have different physiology and needs than adults do, and even some adults have issues with mornings and choose to work second or third shift jobs. the american school system is a serious problem already, and if we want to maximize its effectiveness, it makes sense to adjust it.
