Home schooled teens get more sleep
There has been much criticism of school start times. Elementary school children start the latest and high school students start the earliest. But this goes against our sleep biology - young children get up earliest and teenagers sleep later. Here is a study showing that home schooled teens get about 1.5 hours more sleep per night than those students in public or private schools. In fact 55% of home schooled teens got enough sleep versus 25% of public / private school teens.
