Individuality and Conformity in Education “Common sense to improve student achievement that too few have implemented: let teens sleep more, start school later[. ]”—Arne Duncan, U.S. Secretary of Education. The disputes over schools’ demands for conformity have all been drawn-out for far too long with little change.

Students are tired, and can barely make it through the day without falling asleep. Yet, there is a panacea to this struggle: starting school later.
It is normal to wonder how sleep deprivation affects the academic performance of students as sleep has been implicated in the plastic cerebral changes that underlie learning and memory (Maquet, 2001).
