sleepyteenU.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan stated the obvious in a tweet last month when he said that high school students would be more productive if they could get more sleep and start their days later.

Now he’s taken the discussion a step further by saying in an NPR interview that “…it’s incumbent upon education leaders to not run school systems that work good (sic*) for buses but that don’t work for students,” according to this UPI story.

I’m happy to see this discussion happening at the top.

*I am dismayed, however, to see our Secretary of Education using such poor grammar.
