Starting Later: A Few Links

The talk about starting later this year centered on Iowa tourism industry efforts to seek stricter enforcement of Iowa school start date laws to prevent schools. But there are other starting later conversations we could be having about Iowa schools:

Do high school classes start too early in the morning? Education Week reports on a study that shows student achievement may be improved by later school day start times that better accommodate the natural sleep-wake cycles of teens.

Does formal schooling start too early? David Whitebread reviews the research and makes the case for delaying the start of formal schooling until the age of seven. [HT: @Chris_Liebig]
