Well written article. Later start times are NOT the answer. They are not looking at the big picture and the negative impact on the students, parents and community.

I agree. I went to Faifax county schools many years ago 45 to be exact and I never heard anyone complain that it was too early to school. We went to bed when our parents told us to, of course we didnt have things like the computer, cells phone and tv to keep us up. Tv wasnt on all night either way back when.
