School start times affect students' test scores, according to a study by Colby College economist Finley Edwards. Edwards said he found that students who start school later in the morning watch less television, spend more time on homework and have fewer absences than students who start school earlier in the day. "We can see clear increases of academic performance from just starting school later," Edwards said.
Can a later start to the school day boost student test scores?
