Study: Teens need 9.5 hours of sleep

FRESNO, Calif.

Some students get to start class at 8:30, but chances are, most have to be in first period much earlier than that.

A national online petition was started to prevent schools from starting before 8 a.m. to help make sure kids around the country get that sleep.

The petition didn't get enough signatures, but we still want to know what you think. Should high schools start after 8 a.m.? Tell us on Facebook
