‘Question Of The Day’: Do You Think The School Day Should Start Later?

Thinkstock

A new study from the American Academy of Pediatrics says that teens need more sleep to function, and that middle and high school students should not start school until 8:30 a.m.

Their research shows that sleep deprivation in teens is a big issue. Eighty-seven percent of high school students in the United States are getting less than the recommended 8.5 to 9.5 hours of sleep.

Studies show that when school starts at a later time in the morning, it improves with attendance and dropout rates.

Some say that the students should just go to bed earlier. What do you think?

That leads us to our ‘Question Of The Day’: Do you agree that middle and high school should start no earlier than 8:30 a.m.?
