Another Maryland county is considering making start times at its high schools better in touch with teenagers’ biological circadian rhythms. But it could take a while.
US Ed Secretary Arne Duncan tweeted that high school start times should be later, and we agree. Case in point: high schools in one Maryland county start at 7:17 AM. That’s just ridiculous.
The school board in Anne Arundel County, Md., issued a report last week that addressed the possibility of starting class later, especially for high school students in the county.
