Should have seen this one coming

Talking with a student (who's home sick from school) this morning, he sent me a link to this story, a CBS report on teenagers not getting enough sleep. It's pretty standard stuff; he was pulling the story for a debate project, and we started talking about how schools need to move their start times so their students' bodies can sleep and wake at their natural times, rather than forcing awakeness to get to school early.

I pointed him toward a couple of sources I knew about but then had to run to staff meeting. "One more thing before you go," he said. "I think church should start at noon... you know, so I can get enough sleep."
