Studies have shown that if teens wake up later they have an overall improvement in Math and English, and teachers have mentioned when students arrive at school closer to ten O'clock they are more alert and more able to participate in class, there is a school in Toronto that starts closer to ten O'clock where these results were found and if there is one school that is doing it I don't see why the other schools can't join in too.
This would be especially easy to change now because we are in lockdown so we don't have to go to a physical school, the only change that would have to be made is schedule the google meets later. Not only would doing this allow for teens to sleep for longer (as shown by the school in Toronto) it would also allow for our lunch break line up closer to one O'clock rather than having it at around eleven forty-five.
Finally, other studies have shown that teen's hormones react at a different time than adults and children. This would allow teens to go to bed later when they are tired (closer to midnight for most people I know) and still be able to get at least around nine hours of sleep. Teens that get enough sleep are also less likely to be overweight, suffer from depression, are less likely to be in car accidents, and have better grades and standardized test scores.
