GUILFORD, CT - While the Guilford school system has been an innovator when it comes to going to later school start times to give kids more sleep time, officials have maintained that its been difficult to do so since there is no one coordinated state strategy to tackle the issue. One state - California - just became the first state in the nation to take the bold step of voting to go to later school start times statewide. California will become the first state in the nation to mandate later start times at most middle and high schools under legislation Gov. Gavin Newsom signed into law Sunday.

I originally hail from the Midwest and back East, where school traditionally started each year after Labor Day and final examinations took place no later than the following June. So I find that the Clark County School District’s insistence on starting the school year during what is still the peak summer heat of our desert climate to be extremely puzzling. Purely from a financial perspective, it would certainly make sense to save money by reducing the substantial air conditioning costs needed during the month of August. Despite the incessant wailing about being inadequately funded, the district apparently has money to burn (or perhaps to cool) in this regard. There’s absolutely no need for any energy conservation whatsoever. Am I missing something? … [Read more...] about Why does school start so early in Las Vegas?
