Year-Round Daylight Time Could Mean Sleepier Students


Remember all those studies that say teens need more sleep?  Some schools have adjusted their start times to accommodate the need, but now the push to eliminate the biannual daylight/standard time change is confounding those efforts. 

Researcher Anne Skeldon at the University of Surrey in England notes that going to permanent Daylight Saving Time will mean later sunrises in the winter, forcing students to get up in the dark. 

Her research also notes legislative efforts to adjust the time change, and how the bills sometimes come to cross-purposes.  Anne Skeldon visits The Exchange to talk about her studies.
