I have read SO MANY articles about studies that found that adolescents are hardwired to be move active st night. To require that young people get up at early hours doesn’t make any sense! They need to sleep in the mornings. The studies I’ve read show that the early starting hours, 7:40 am for my 11 year old grandson in middle school, have a negative impact on learning, temperament, emotions, and productivity.
I realize I live in a country where immigrant children are put in cages. It may be too much to expect in this political climate that our own children should be raised with an understanding of their sleep needs.
I would hope that some time in the future there will be the political will to insure that quality of life of ALL young people is considered in our legislative decisions.
