Here's something every kid knows, and that parents have been ignoring since the beginning of time. Sneak a quick peek around your office/classroom/rodeo clown school. Chances are you're going to see one co worker yawning and rubbing her eyes, another guy pulling the droopy lid zombie glare and one person who is as chipper and alert as a coked up bunny rabbit. How do we know? Because two out of three adult Americans are walking around sleep deprived, that's how. Which is why schools that pushed their start time back are reporting remarkable improvements. One school in England reported that persistent absenteeism dropped by 27 percent, while a high school in Toronto, Canada, claimed that the 11th grade math failure rate dropped from 45 percent to 17 percent. Not only that, but kids going to school later say that they're less depressed, and their parents claim that their kids are easier to deal with."He's still terrible at art, but at least the cat's alive in this one." Because of a hormonal switch in the natural body clock, teens are often not sleepy late at night, unlike most adults and small children, so they stay up late. As a result, most teens are getting something like 6.9 hours of sleep rather than the nine hours they need. That two hour difference may not sound like much, oakley tombstone eye shields but it makes a HUGE difference in the classroom. And falling asleep in class isn't even the worst case scenario. Remember how chronic sleep deprivation can lead to a host of ailments in adults? Now put those symptoms on an already hormonally screwed up teenage body and see how well things work out for you. (They don't.) Which is probably why schools that have taken the initiative of pushing back their school day for teens are reporting such high success rates. One district even saved $700,000 a year by making the change, since the new schedule actually required fewer buses. So much so that they made the phrase "Let the Sunshine In" the chorus of their hippiest of hippie songs "Aquarius." Little did those granolas know that doing exactly what they prescribed would result in students scoring 25 percent higher on standardized tests and that kids with the largest classroom windows would be found to progress 15 percent faster in math and 23 percent faster in reading than those with smaller windows. Daylight, it turns out, isn't just important for photosynthesis and warmth and making Earth habitable. It also elevates our moods, helps eyesight and suppresses melatonin, the chemical that special forces oakley sunglasses affects our sleep patterns. In other words, students who do their learning in the daylight are happier, able to see more and less sleepy."I feel more conscious now that I'm not walking into things." The problem for today's students is that back in the '70s, architects were pressured to design windowless classrooms, partially to keep costs down, and partially because administrators and engineers got it into their heads that windows were a distraction to students. As if the trees and cars outside the school doors would suddenly erupt in can can chorus lines to keep the school kids from paying attention to algebra. So, for students getting their education in 30 year old buildings designed by window haters, that's the bad news. For everyone else,Or, "putting some freaking windows in."Give Every Teacher a Microphone
