I have 5 kids and with all of their homework, dinner, activities, showers, etc, we find it hard toRead More fit it all in. They have tons of homework and then it's hard to fall asleep immediately afterwards. I definitely think these kids shouldn't be starting school at 7:15 a.m.

Research upon research backs this doctor up. Teens' body clock naturally move later (staying upRead More later and getting up later.) 7:15 start times are foolish and work AGAINST good learning. Elementary school starts at 9:15! It should be the opposite. Little kids pop out of bed bright and early. Teens? Not so much. That's biology.

I agree with the Doctor. Too many kids have extra curricular activities on top of doing homework,Read More eating, showering etc. High school start time is a bit too early for these kids.

We have to make people aware that our State is run by public employee Unions and we need court casesRead More like today which ruled that the California Teacher Tenure rules are unconstitutional so that we can change laws and vote people out of office who do not represent the interests of the public who pay the taxes.

Something that is interesting to note is that high school grads are going to four year universitiesRead More and studying subject that isn't marketable. While on the other hand you have people getting vocational training at vocational schools that essentially guarantees them a job out of school that will make them 'x' amount of money. So it isn't that college degrees are worthless, some are. It is also said that sometimes trade school is the right choice!

I couldn't help but to do some comparison between Stevenson and DHS as a resident in Deerfield,Read More since district has put up the news on the website. Operational spending per student is $16,839 in Stevenson and $20,821 in DHS. STEM ranking, #37 for Stevenson and #145 for DHS. I have been very disappointed in science teaching in DHS. Now I believe that there is some truth in the rankings.

I don't think magnet schools should be included. All the other schools have to take all students inRead More their district, magnet schools can pick and choose best students.

Huntley is ranked #56, higher than Cary Grove per the full list.
Don Drzal April 11, 2014 at 10:51 am
The original list did not include Huntley High School. I wrote an email to the Washington Post'sRead More author, Jay Mathews, who was extremely kind and quick to reply. As you can now see, he has included our high school on the list. And whereas no one ever celebrated "We're Number 56!", it shows that Huntley and District 158 are making strides and will continue to do so. This is also a testament to our wonderful students, teachers, and community.

thank you Catherine for writing this article! Camille is doing what she can to raise awareness aboutRead More the affects of words! As you can see by the story you printed words are killing our children. Ask.fm and the others are horrible because they can do it anonymously. I've seen what bullying can do to the strongest kids; it makes them feel humiliated and go into a deep dark hole; words! By printing stories like Camille's and others raising awareness about bullying and maybe parents will then start to talk to their children about being kind. www.facebook.com/camsDTBD.com

Our children have a regular bedtime and I can understand the lack of time in the evenings for manyRead More parents. I understand the point of the article and I agree that the amount of homework for some of our younger school aged children is getting out of hand. However, we all make decisions and prioritize different things in our life and our children's life. If your child is not getting enough of something or too much of something else it might be time to evaluate why that is occurring and if there are changes that can be made. In some cases there may not be a good option, but the real question is "Is there a good enough option"
