Changing school start times has ripple effects — And those ripples could sink many families

from WBUR (commentary)

Johannah Haney, a contributor for WBUR, writes: "I'm the parent of a first grader at Manning Elementary, a Boston Public School whose start time is slated to change from 9:30 a.m. to 7:15 a.m. In the days since I've learned of Superintendent Tommy Chang and Mayor Marty Walsh's plan to roll out new school start times, I have vacillated between fury, panic, sadness and confusion. I have heard many parents worry about excessively early pickup times. My child's bus, for example, currently picks her up 47 minutes before school starts; assuming it stays the same, that means she would need to be at the bus stop by 6:30 a.m. next year. Parents are also concerned about their kids being in after-school programming for many hours." more
