Morning comes way too early for many of us, but even more so for a teenager's biological clock. This weekend at their retreat, the Seattle School Board will consider whether high schools should move to a later start time. The proposal is controversial, but from a strictly scientific point of view, more evidence is building that the idea makes sense. “It's the equivalent of asking an adult to do their job at 2:00 a.m.,” said Dr. Maida Chen with Seattle Children’s.
