Assignment 2-3It has been reported that a majority of high school students suffer from sleep deprivation. It has also been found that the early start of school is counterproductive to learning. Several school districts around the country have remedied this by pushing back the starting time for school and have extended the school day later. Research one of these districts and report what they have done and what results they have experienced and your feelings about the situation I research the University of Minnesota and in the website I found it also mentioned Jessamine County. Both of these schools decided that it was better for teens to start a little later because they were not getting sleep. In the article is says that more than 80 school districts have changed the start times in their high schools so kids get more sleep. Jessamine County’s high school set their time back 50 minutes in the year 2003! It made a big impact on the high school.
