70% of high school students report sleeping 7 hours or less on a regular basis. A teenager who goes to sleep 11pm would need to sleep until 7:30am or later in order to obtain sufficient sleep. Going to sleep in class is really common and students are getting in trouble for it. Maybe if school started later, students wouldn’t have to sleep at school and risk getting in trouble.

Students at Holman have gotten in trouble for sleeping and we don’t know where they lay their head at home. Students shouldn’t be punished at school for sleep just for that reason. What if students don’t don’t have a place to lay their head? Not meaning to get all sad but really, we really don’t know if they have a stable living place with a bed to lay their head on. “Getting enough sleep is important for students’ health, safety, and academic performance,” Anne Wheaton, the lead author and epidemiologist in the CDC’s Division of Population Health, said in a statement.
