It is obvious what started this. Washington DC has the highest percentage of gays and lesbians. Gays and lesbians are known for having children when they are wanted and when they are financially and emotionally ready for children. They also had harder times in school. This means that Washington DC has a higher percentage of parents who really care for their children.

It's truly sick. Just because they love and appreciate their children more than a lot of straight parents doesn't mean that they can change school tradition for the rest of us.

The whole point of getting kids up early every morning and forcing them to go somewhere they hate for the rest of the day is to get them used to what the rest of their lives will be like.

BTW I taught a 7:30 am class this morning (college). I hate it. The students hate it. Had to send one home because she was so hung-over I was afraid she would puke.


True story

So I got my daughter to school on time this morning after much grumbling.  As I arrived at the school I noticed another problem of starting school too early... teenage drivers half awake trying to get a parking space before they are late.  Imagine bumper cars with drunk midgets.

The kicker was that at the entrance of the school they had placed a crashed up car that had been driven by a teenager who was supposedly texting while driving.  My guess is she was driving to school at the butt crack of dawn, fell asleep and had an accident.

I really hate the school officials who tell the parents that they need to start early so the sports teams have enough time to play after school.  Your team hasn't won a single game in three farking years.  GET OVER IT!

hasty ambush: doglover: Schools throughout the Washington DC area announce plans to start later in the day so that their precious, tired widdle snowflakes can have more morning nappy time teachers don't have hangovers the size of mountain gorillas.

At least somebody realizes the real reason behind this is to give the Union thug teachers some extra rack time.

 If your still in bed at 0600 your "burning daylight" and need to get up.   Life is too short to spend it sleeping


Yeah!  It's not like there are scientific studies that prove that teenagers perform better at school if they sleep later and their day starts later!  If they're doing better at school then it logically follows that they'll have better opportunities in life.  Let me put it in terms you may find easier to understand: teenagers who get the extra sleep automatically grow bigger bootstraps.  Why are you against that?

Maybe your experiences with 0600 wake ups are the reason why you can't tell the difference between "your" and "you're"?

Research shows that starting school at early results in a lowered results.  One study claimed that kids' brains, especially as they get into their teen years, don't function before something like 9 or 10am.

This is not stupid.  Adolescence is a time when humans require more rest than most other times in their lives.  An extra hour of sleep has resulted in much improved test scores and better grades.
