Via the teenage sleep patterns. I agree that coming to school in the morning may affect their attitude towards school and affect their grades. But I feel that waking up in the morning is essential because it prepares them for the real world. Its a students responsibility to know they need a certain amount of rest in order to do what they have to do the following day. Therefore i don't believe school should start later because they are preparing for life after high school.
