Later school start times research: have your say

You may have seen recent media reports about the idea of later morning start times for rangatahi (Years 12 & 13), as a pathway towards better sleep and health and wellbeing for teens. The intense media interest has started the conversation across the motu, and following on from that, we now ask you to have your say.

We’d like to hear your opinions about later starts for Year 12 and 13 students.
