Sound Off for June 17th: Should school start an hour later?

Seattle Public Schools will ask parents this fall if they'd like to see school start times adjusted to start one hour later.

The national non-profit group, Start School Later, says starting classes at 9 or 9:30 helps students improve memory and reduces tardies.

The group has the backing of sleep specialists and doctors who say it's a great way to improve learning.

The Seattle school district says if it has the support of parents, it will make the late start official in the 2014-2015 school year.

Do you like the idea of schools starting an hour later than normal?

Would you like to see it happen in Spokane?
