Homeschooled students get more sleep than traditional students, study shows
In the battle for more Z’s, it seems that homeschooled students have a leg up.
A new study revealed that homeschoolers get more sleep than students at traditional schools. As a result of their increased sleep, the study also showed that the students were better prepared to learn, The Washington Post reported.
The study was conducted by researchers at National Jewish Health in Denver, who studied the sleep patterns of 2,612 students, including nearly 500 homeschoolers, The Post reported.
Homeschooled students slept an average of one and a half hours more a night than students in traditional schools, the study showed.
