Back to School: Kyla Wahlstrom Discusses Teen Sleep and Learning
Kyla Wahlstrom's research on school start time and its connection to student learning is a particularly hot topic right now, as teachers, students, and parents prepare for the beginning of a new school year. Wahlstrom has recently been invited to discuss her research on Missouri Public Radio's morning news program, "Up To Date," and also with WCCO-AM's Jordana Green. The interviews highlighted Wahlstrom's research findings, including the positive effects of sleep on students' learning and the political difficulties of changing school start times. Related outcomes for family life and teen behavior were also discussed. Wahlstrom is the Director of CEHD's Center for Applied Research and Educational Improvement (CAREI). The interviews are available in the archives for the radio stations and Wahlstrom's published reports on this subject are available on the CAREI website.
