Teens need Z's. (letters).
We believe kids should be going to bed earlier on school nights
("Let Me Sleep!" 2/11/02). The reasons for staying up late are
partly the fault of teachers--for giving us too much homework--and
partly our fault--for having too many after-school activities. Schools
should start an hour later so students can get a good night's
sleep. Taking pills to stay awake in class is unhealthy. The cycle of
staying up late and getting up early has to change.
