(Honolulu, August 2015) The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently joined with the American Academy of Pediatrics in calling for schools to push back start times. The CDC report says early start times for adolescents don't align with students' biological sleep patterns, which can have academic impacts but also cause safety concerns. The National Sleep Foundation also expanded the sleep recommendations for children in every age group this year, adding more weight to the argument for starting the school day later.
In addition to some recent back-to-school advice for parents, Dr. Kimberly Stone at Argosy University, Hawaii spoke with George Jones at Raycom News Network about this recent report and was featured as an expert on 50 Raycom TV stations and websites throughout the U.S. (one of them is in Honolulu).
