Teachers all around the country are finding increasingly difficult to manage the final classes of the day. There have been many reports of students falling asleep in class more than often. Students only seem to be going through the notion of learning and engage with the most minimal of effort. It is not only counterproductive for teachers but also that of students. Something needs to be done.
In 2011, The government made it easy for schools to decide both their opening and closing times, however. 29% of schools in England have chosen to lengthen day now finish earlier. A colossal 71% of schools have chosen to extend the length of the school day.
A school needs to be fit for purpose. We should support our students by providing them with the support that they need. This includes not sending them to class colossally tired and mentally depleted.
