If sleep is so important then why does school start so early?
Because they expect you to go to bed earlier. Personally, I work a night shift, and I think that kids go to school really late (usually close to my bed time). "Early" is relative.
Because the government and school board is incredibly stupid.
To prepare you for real life.
Because it is torture and they expect little kids to jail break each morning so they can judge the rest of your one life everybody's lives. So ya sadly, living through that now.... Kid... School gets ya nowhere.... Hahaha
If you went to school later, you would miss the bus! :-)
It's only "so early" if you don't go to sleep early enough.
