From the Annals of Common Sense – Later HS Start Times Advocated

Not a very hard-hitting or controversial topic here, but good to see that MLive picked up on Duncan and Flanagan’s endorsements of later start times for high school students. You don’t need to be a social scientist (though studies exist) to know that teenagers need more sleep to function and are not entirely active and attentive in the early hours of the morning.

The only thing that remains to be seen is how higher authorities can compel districts to set later start times.
