More Time For Students

Most students are required to go to school five out of the seven days of a week. They study hard, sleep little, and worry a lot. Students need to relax. At home, some children are privleged enough to have relaxing lifestyles, but others have afterschool activities they must take care of. Some students have sports, lessons, or prior commitments. They have no time to themselves or tme to commit to their homework and studies. Students should have a break time during school hours. This break time will enable students to relax and hang out with their friends. It really doesn't have to be a long break time. It could be about fifteen to thirty minutes. The outcome of giving students a little break time include better behavior. Teachers can just threaten not to give students a break time if they don't behave. Students taking heavy course loads can relax a bit anf focus harder in the next class. Some schools, if they can afford it, might want to install a student center for aultimate relaxation. As a student myself, I can guarantee students will appreciate the extra time teachers give them to themselves. If a break time casues too many disciplinary problems, then terminate it. It is really that simple. Please, children need time for themselves.

My school has an open-campus lunch which allows students to do just that. Students go outside (still on school grounds), goof off in the gym, read in the library, do last minute work in the computer lab and sit in the hall talking with friends. I really like the open-campus lunch system and hope that other schools will adopt it.

i agree with you on this students need more time to relax and be with their family. we as students worry too much about grades what we look like to others and how we act. we have many pressures to be someone we are not.
