School Start Times

Its pretty much the end of the year, but one thing i’ve been thinking about lately is school start times. A few years back, I wrote a paper about the controversial issue of when school should start. Many people believe that the amount of time a student is in school is a direct factor in how much knowledge they retain. The truth however, is that early start times leave students tired, unfocused, and even unmotivated. If schools were to start later, students would be able to get the amount of sleep necessary to be successful and motivated. The issue is one that may come with many benefits and disadvantages, but its definitely a question that should be asked.
