Harvard Professor Talks Sleep Deficit and School Start Times

By Yvette Vignando - 15th March 2012

This is an excerpt from a longer public forum on sleep deficit and health. Professor of Sleep Medicine, Susan Redline M.D. discusses school start times and whether schools should start later. Do current school start times force children to go to school at times when, according to their natural, biological rhythms, they should be asleep? Dr Redline says this problem leads to mood problems and poorer academic performance.

I am curious to know what you think about this idea - having teens, or possibly all children start school later in the morning?

We have also published two articles recently on teens and sleep if you are interested in thinking more about this topic:
