If I could go back in time and be a high school student again (let me re-phrase that: if I had to go back and do it all over again), I’d like to attend one of the schools in Toronto where kids can start classes as late as 11:30 a.m.
Finally, we are seeing changes happen in school systems to support students’ natural rhythms that prefer later nights and even later mornings. It hasn’t happened yet, but I read an article online reporting that next year one high school in this Canadian city will be chosen for allowing its students to sleep in—big time. In the United States, school districts in 19 states have implemented later start times, but I don’t think any push it out to as late as 11:30! For adults, that sounds like lunchtime.
