"Imagine if the school was giving kids a drink of alcohol every day before sending them out on the road. There would be a massive outcry. This is essentially what many school districts are doing with inhumanely early school start times. If the purpose of school are to educate our teenagers and keep them safe, why do we persist with schedules that increase the risk of injury and death?" - Dr. Craig Canapari, chapter leader of Start School Later Guilford, CT on his blog, drcraigcanapari.com
