Healthy school hours make economic sense.

Growing teen brains and bodies need healthy "wake-up" times.

Preparing teenagers for the "real world" includes making sure they get healthy sleep.

When schools start later, student bedtimes stay the same.

Healthy bed times and other good habits ​are important--but so are healthy wake times.

Children of all ages, including teenagers, need school hours that allow for health and safety.

When schools start at healthier hours, extracurricular activities adjust and thrive.

Students have after-school jobs no matter what time school starts (or ends).

While local schools set individual hours, state or federal standards can ensure they will be safe and healthy.

Schools before the 1970s and 1980s did not start so early in the morning.​

Later start times are no worse for working parents than current start times.
