Demand for a digital fix is ruining our society

Posted: Saturday, April 14, 2018 12:00 am

I sat and with somewhat amusement listened as the superintendent of schools present his rationale for changing the opening time of school from 7:45 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. “The students are coming to school tired and lacking for sleep.”

He reinforced his argument by quoting several articles supporting his argument to change the time of school opening. I had to pinch myself to be sure I was fully “awake” and hearing the argument correctly.
