How Early is Too Early to Head to Class?
A mother wants schools to push back school start-times.
In October, Terra Snider posted an opinion piece on Severna Park Patch asking her neighbors to sign a petition to push back the time that students had to start school.
Citing information from National Sleep Foundation about adolescents, sleep and health, Snider asked readers to sign a petition asking the Obama Administration to “promote legislation to prevent public schools from starting earlier than 8 a.m.”
Snider emailed Ellicott City Patch because, she said, she received signatures from parents in this area. She has since started a new petition, and wanted to share the information with our readers.
