Controversial opinion paper by Anne Skeldon and Derk-Jan Dijk published in Current Biology

The journal Current Biology has published an opinion paper entitled “School start times and daylight saving time confuse Californa lawmakers” co-authored by Anne Skeldon and Derk-Jan Dijk (Surrey Sleep Centre, FHMS).  The paper is published open access and is available electronically worldwide (link here).  The paper points out that two bills currently making their way through the California state legislature are not supported by current science, and they discuss current research on correlating sleep, biological wake time, and school start times.  The figure left illustrates their argument.
