California law on driving while using your cell phone

The debate over high school start times

For many years now, early start times have been the norm at U.S. high schools. There has been a push against this trend lately. There has been movement in schools in many different parts of the country towards later start times. In recent years, at least 45 states have seen some schools in them make such a move. However, early start times remain prevalent, with more than 85 percent of the public high schools here in the U.S. having a start time before 8:30 a.m. as of the 2015-2016 school year.
