Those who have teenagers know that their brains don't wake up until about lunch time. So should we start the school day then?
Starting later would have benefits. While we don't expect Beaufort County School District superintendent Jeff Moss to fix all that's wrong with the school system overnight, this is a step in the right direction.
The drawbacks are more than the possibility that the school district may have to purchase new buses. Students who have after-school activities or part-time jobs will find themselves stressed for time to complete homework or to have social lives.
I remember when I was in school, staying up after midnight to finish my homework. And we didn't have all the electronics to sidetrack us.
Let's see how all of this works out.
