Are you having trouble getting your kids up for school this week? Do they complain that school starts too early? The United States education secretary agrees with them!

Your kids have a friend in a very high place: The United States education secretary says it wouldn't be such a bad thing if schools starting classes a little later in the morning...closer to 8:30 or 9am.

Studies have blamed lack of sleep for poor academic performance.

Some worry about what a later school day would do to school clubs and athletic programs.
