Later school start times could address 'crisis' of sleep-deprived teens, Pa. report finds
from The Philadelphia Inquirer
Citing a "public health crisis of epidemic proportions" regarding American adolescents not getting enough sleep, an advisory committee convened by Pennsylvania's Joint State Government Commission has ample support from medical authorities for later school start times, particularly for high school students. However, the committee, in a report released Thursday, did not call for a state-wide adoption of initiatives already underway in several of the Commonwealth's 500 districts or for the creation of a pilot program.
