Later School Start Times?

“Would later school start times perk up sleeping students?”
Research teams in the United States have been looking into whether or not school times should be modified to start after 8:30 a.m. to help students get enough sleep.
Approximately 50% of the parents surveyed were in favour of a later start time. Our adolescent students tend to perform better with a later start time as it enables them to get enough hours of sleep.
