Sleep & School

This is pretty much common sense, but here is an article that offers substantive proof of the benefits of sleeping more for students, and also the fact that they would sleep longer if we were to start the day later. Here's the paragraph I found most intriguing:
The researchers found a strong association between hours of sleep per school night and GPA, level of motivation, emotional disturbance and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Each additional hour of sleep on school nights reduced the risk of scoring in the clinically significant range of emotional disturbance and ADHD by 25 percent and 34 percent, respectively.
Here's the whole article.

And please answer the Poll on the right side of this page.
