Should high schools start later in the day so kids can get more sleep?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on September 5, 2010
“Yes, research shows that high school kids don’t get enough sleep and that affects their health and their academic performance and everything else.”
“Yes they should. I remember when I was in high school I would have been able to concentrate a lot better if I had more sleep.”
“I would say no because, generally, when you have to start working you’re going to have to start waking up very early in order to meet those obligations.”
“Oh, give me a break … get them up early in the morning. It would do them some good.”
