‘Z’s to A’s: Do Utah students suffer from lack of sleep?’

The Salt Lake Tribune

August 11th, 2013 by 

Are students getting enough sleep? That’s the question that high schools in Utah and across the country are trying to answer as a new school year approaches. According to the Salt Lake Tribune, “research in schools that have gone to late starts shows better attendance and grades as well as less depression among students.”

“I see it, as do many of my colleagues, as a bit of a no-brainer,” said Amy Wolfson, professor of psychology at Holy Cross. Wolfson’s fields of study include developmental changes in sleep patterns, and sleep and behavior in adolescents.
