LA Times interviews Wahlstrom on benefits of later school start times

Wahlstrom.jpgProfessor Kyla Wahlstrom is featured in a Los Angeles Times story titled "Later school start times and Zzzs to A's," which focuses on the increasing body of research indicating that delaying school start times -- even by just 30 minutes -- makes a significant difference in how well students feel and perform in school. One of the first and most influential studies was conducted in the mid-1990s by Wahlstrom and her research team at the Center for Applied Research and Educational Improvement (CAREI). It led the way for continuing study of later start times and their relationship to educational achievement for high school students.
