This August 25, 2014 NPR: Shots article talks about concerns being raised that start times for middle and high school should be at 8:30 or later to help teens get adequate sleep.  Pediatricians point out that teens need between 8-1/2 and 9 hours of sleep, and that the majority of teens are not able to fall asleep before 11pm, not so much because of distractions in their bedroom, but because that’s how teens are wired.
