The research from the American Pediatric Association is clear: a later start time for middle and high school students could improve mental health, grades, and school success. So, why aren’t schools flipping the switch and starting later?

Superintendent Dr. Scott Rocco joins Jamie and Jerri in this episode to discuss his research on what exactly it will take for school districts to make this change. Tune in to learn why making the change to a later school day start time isn’t quite as simple as it seems.
