Later School Start Times!

A new study found that a later start to the school day leads to more sleep and better mood in students. One school delayed its start time by 45 minutes, changing from a 7:30 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. and after one month, the students reported less depression, less sleepiness and overall “feeling more refreshed.” Critics argue that by changing the school start time, school buses could be hampered by rush hour traffic and after school activities would end later.
