Schools around the US are finally pushing back their start times — And it's working
from Business Insider
From Oct. 20:
With a population of just over 11,000, Dobbs Ferry, New York is your typical sleepy town, except for one thing. When the first school bell rings, kids are wide awake. Last September, Dobbs Ferry School District joined a small but growing cluster of schools around the U.S. that have started pushing back their middle and high school start times in an effort to combat student grogginess. Bolstered by a mountain of sleep science research that says pre-teens and teenagers are some of the most sleep-deprived people and would actually do better in school with more rest, these forward-thinking schools are finally cutting worn-out students a break. They're letting kids sleep in.
