More sleep for teens, more hardship for parents as school bell times change
from The Washington Post
There's been only a 20-minute change in high school schedules in Montgomery County, but 17-year-old Luc Cassagnol says he sleeps longer and is more awake for his first-period calculus class. "A huge improvement," he said of the new 7:45 a.m. opening bell. But others are less enthusiastic about the districtwide reset of school hours — the first in more than 20 years — saying that the shift intended to help tired teenagers get more sleep has been tough on younger students and their families.
