When the start of school was delayed by 25 minutes during the winter term, the proportion of high-school students who slept eight hours or more on a school night rose to 44% from 18%, U.S. researchers found. Scheduling classes a little later extended the sleeping time of students by 29 minutes on school nights, according to the study in the Journal of Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics.
