What if we let our kids get just one extra hour of sleep?

I've been writing about how early school start times have been harming our children for over five years now. Three years ago, I reported on a study that found making school start times a little later increased academic achievement dramatically.

Now it would appear that others are catching on.

UK scientists are leading a project called Teensleep that will recruit 100 schools from across the UK and divide them into four groups.

One group will shift school start times to 10am for students aged between 14 and 16. Another group will offer sleep education to students. Another group will combine the later start time with sleep education, and the final group will be the control group.

The researchers argue that the body clocks of those aged between 10 and 55(!) are not suited to waking early in the day. In fact, they feel that  those aged between 14 and 24 are more sleep deprived than any other age group .

They expect their study to show that later school times can increase the educational achievement of our children, and have a positive impact on their health, too.

Results are expected in 2018. I'll be sure to report back when they're released.
