Make Yonkers Public High schools Start at 8:15AM 1 signatures
Our goal is to extend the time the students get to rest their bodies and most importantly... brains. It is a proven fact that students who receive less sleep in the morning experience problems concentrating and focusing on school work in the morning. It may not seem that big of a time difference, but as a student myself I do realize that other schools who start later on in the morning can not only concentrate more than students who wake up earlier, but also can learn more and understand more of the subject they are learning. If the school starts later, we think that the grades in the schools will raise and the students will learn more material.
