Albuquerque gets it

The Albuquerque, N.M., public school district is beating us at our own game.

According to local news coverage, the district is proposing to move back school start times for high-school students in their district to let teens sleep an hour later each day. They say their teens don’t get sleepy until around 11 p.m., and so the students aren’t getting the sleep they need to learn. Their evidence? A Brown University study.

(Sorry, but yes — Brown does still have 9 a.m. classes.)
