With schools starting too early, most of the student are seen yawning uncontrollably unable to concentrate during classes. Half open, half closed eyes lead to numerous traffic accidents with children trying to cross the road. In an extensive study by Rand corporation on delaying the start of school, it has been found that delaying school opening time can significantly impact the economic growth of the US, with around $83 billion fiscal growth when implemented with proper procedure over a decade.

In a press release co-author Wendy Troxel said that the economic effects of delaying school timing to 8:30 am will easily show up in a few years duration plus there is a health benefit for children along with monetary benefits which makes up for a win-win situation for both the children and US economy as well.

There are certain well-cooked arguments against delaying the start of schools due to various factors such as loss of money, increased cost of transportation timing changes, etc.

According to the researchers, the study had a conservative approach and didn’t include factors arising from minimal sleep pattern among children such as higher suicide rates, increased obesity, and mental health issues which suggested that the estimated economic benefits could be much higher.

This study has also been supported by the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention.

According to CDC, Not getting enough sleep has been associated with various risk factors among high school students such as being overweight, drinking alcohol, smoking tobacco, and using drugs, as well as poor academic performance. The top reason for children not getting enough sleep is the schools starting too early. The American Academy of Pediatrics also recommends that apart from young children, middle school high school students should also have the chance to start school from 8:30 am which can help with their academic performance and overall health.
