A new study at Seattle School District high schools has found that later start times are associated with more sleep and better performance for students. They are among hundreds of U.S. schools that have pushed back start times, following the American Academy of Pediatrics’ guidance to delay the start of middle and high school classes until 8:30 a.m. Still, fewer than 1 in 5 schools comply.
A committee tasked with settling the differences between the House and Senate's version of the Tennessee school vouchers bill approved a compromised version that limits the program to schools in certain districts only. The amendment also would not allow home-schooled students to participate in the education savings account legislation.
