Let them sleep ( bless em!)

It turns out the little darlings , snowflakes , whatever may just be shortening their day even more ... the times Iíve heard it said universities could easily condense a 3 year into a one year course given the actual productive times , the school days has certainly become shorter in my lifetime ... and now things may change again



We're not lazy, we just need more sleep, say pupils http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-47164545


( a silly old fart was quoted as saying get to bed earlier )

As MPs prepare to debate a petition for schools to start at 10:00, teenagers tell the BBC about their own experiences with early school starts.
It takes 100,000 signatures to trigger a Parliamentary debate and this one, saying early school starts make pupils "so tired", has gained 180,000.
"I remember how miserable I was from waking up early," says sixth form student Leah.
Her college is experimenting with a later start for classes.
But Leah recalls the early starts at her old school with horror.
"In the mornings of our GCSEs, everyone would be so tired, you could see on their faces that they weren't ready for the exam, they weren't awake enough."

Or on bleedin' Facebook, Instagram or other various gadgets instead of revising for their exams. You would think it was only them who had to go through early-day starts and exams.

Where's me hanky? I feel like shedding a few tears for them.

Hi

They should try going to school in some other Countries, a much earlier start.

You can tell those on Benefits here, they do not surface until the middle of the morning.
