Teenagers need lie-ins!

Dr Paul Kelley, of Monkseaton High School in North Tyneside has said that research showed allowing teenagers to begin lessons at 11am had a "profound impact" on learning.

How I would've loved a Head Teacher like that whilst I was at school.

This idea of allowing teenagers a lie-in would combat the zombie effect that is evident with teenagers first thing in the morning. The research also showed that, apparently, teenagers brains work 2 hours behind adults.

I concur.
