I am a proud Citizen of Charlotte N.C. I go to Harris Road Middle School. One of the downsides of school though is that it is to long. I am sitting in class all day for seven hours which is bad for your health. I wake up at seven in the morning and I get back home at 4:30 getting back at 4:30 is bad enough but when baseball season comes around I will be getting home around six. Then I have to do my homework, eat, shower and then it’s like time to go to bed. Then it repeats. This happens for so many people and this is one of the reasons so many people dislike school.

If we lowered the amount of time in school it would give students more time to sleep which would help them in many ways. This is why I think school time should be
