                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION


 
Expressing the sense of Congress that secondary schools should consider 
               starting school after 9:00 in the morning.

Whereas scientific studies indicate that adolescents experience hormonal changes 
        that keep them awake at night;
Whereas most secondary schools begin classes at 7:30 or earlier in the morning;
Whereas most teen crime occurs between 3:00 and 6:00 in the afternoon and a 
        later start would result in a later school day; and
Whereas many adolescents do not get enough sleep to realize their full academic 
        potential: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring),  
That it is the sense of Congress that secondary schools should begin 
classes after 9:00 in the morning.
