The school principal is considering whether or not to open the study center before school starts. Below is an argument why this should be done.


The school’s study center should be available for student use before school as well as in the afternoon. Some students are dropped off before school starts and must wait outside until the doors are unlocked. Instead, students could be studying in the center during that time. It certainly is safer inside the school than it is outside. Also, opening the center early would allow students to get out of the cold. Then students could have a little fun before school starts.
