School start times and teenagers

By request, a thread to discuss whether school start times should be later, especially in high school. Not an APP-specific topic, but let's do a thread on it anyway.

To get the discussion started, let me point to an article, "Do Later School Start Times Really Help High School Students?". The article summarizes several studies that showed higher grades, better test scores, and fewer traffic accidents when teens had later start times, and also summarizes the negatives (impact on after school sports and work schedules).
