Why teenagers are so miserable in the mornings
Very interesting 30 minute slot from the radio with implications for both the worlds of work and edcuation. I believe that the Head of Monkseaton School in the north east is applying to the Education Department to try out some of the findings, such as starting school a couple of hours later for adolescents to take into account the altered circadian rhythms of teenagers. (School will also finish a couple of hours later for them).
I did put this to a couple of teachers today; the first one wasn't too fazed but did add the rider that if there wasn't a space in the car park then he'd go home (I'm never sure with him). The other said something along the lines of, "We'll see what the unions have to say about that"
