Places in California have implemented later start times for middle and high school students because they are not getting enough sleep. They just can't get going in the early hours. The CDC says because they are overweight, smoking and drinking and doing drugs at night it makes it hard for them to fall asleep. So let's accommodate their bad choices by later start times rather than addressing the overweight problem, drugs, drinking, and smoking. I need to stay home and shut off the news. My blood pressure now requires a later start time.
