Later school start times could help teens in Aotearoa get more sleep and improve their health and wellbeing. In an opinion piece in the New Zealand Medical Journal, researchers point out that adolescents' natural sleep-wake biology shifts at puberty to favour later bedtimes, and start times of 9:45am or later would help address sleep issues in senior secondary students. 

I spoke to Barbara Galland from the University of Otago about this research.
