The Atlantic--The Curse of Americaís Illogical School-Day Schedule

It starts too early for teensí sleep patterns, and ends too early for working parents. Does the country have to be stuck with it?

The world does not revolve around you, teens are often told. Indeed it doesnít, as they are reminded every school-day morning when disabling their alarms. The average start time for public high schools, 7:59, requires teens to get up earlier than is ideal for their biological clocks, meaning many teens disrupt their natural sleep patterns every school day.
