I strongly agree with this petition. Later school timing will also let students pay more attention along as giving them a better state of mind.

Research has shown that being tired impairs drivers just as much if not more than being intoxicated. Combine that with inexperienced teen drivers and it's no wonder every year our students are impacted by accidents, many of them fatalities (here in Wake County). If drowsiness impacts driving, it also affects academics. Let's help our students succeed (and live a little longer).

I am a Wake County student and I have a hard time waking up in the morning, and usually feel unrefreshed and tired even after being awake for an extended period of time.

My daughter's high school starts at 7:10 a.m. - simply insane! She's tired all the time and is doing her best.

Thanks for adding your voice.
