Study halls are a time for students to either get their homework done, do some T.A. work for teachers, or talk to teachers or friends. Students complain about how early they have to wake up to get to school on time feeling tired and drained of energy. What if study halls were cut to have a shorter day or more curricular classes? This would allow for school to start later and get out earlier. Taking out study halls could also allow for more room for curricular credits, so then students can graduate earlier and go into college or start their career earlier than before. Plus students can have more time after school to talk to teachers if they have a question on the homework.

On the other hand, taking study halls away could take away the resources like the Internet or a print that some students might not have or able to use at home. Also study halls have allowed for students in music programs to have more opportunities to do a lesson that helps them understand the music their given in class. Study halls also allow students to get homework done that couldn’t get done the night before or needs to get done that day.
