Study concludes later school start time benefits student learning
from By: Brian Stack (commentary)
I recently spent time eavesdropping on some of my students while on a bus ride for a field trip. I couldn't help but listen to their discussion on later start times at school. The day prior, our school had a two-hour delay due to weather, the fifth this school year. The students were remarking at how much more productive and effective they felt overall when we had weather delays, and they wished school would start later on a regular basis. The conversation got me thinking about an issue that has come up for me time and time again as a high school principal.
