Start School Later

Last month, Pediatrics, the official journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), issued a formal policy statement concerning School Start Times for Adolescents ( In essence, the AAP called for schools to start later, citing sleep deprivation among teenagers as “an important public health issue.” This site from Start School Later, a group advocating for “health, safety and equity in education,” provides good, if somewhat one-sided, information on the topic. If you’re unfamiliar, start with Research & Info, which provides links to a number of informative sites about adolescent sleep needs and the impact of early school start times. Success Stories takes readers to schools around the country that have experimented with, and benefited from, later start times. If you're inspired, you can also Get Involved. Whatever your position on the issue, this is an informative and interesting site.
