WTF!! I wonder what crisis brought this issue up. Typical liberals address BS minutia and avoid the problems that need solved.

On the other hand, Ray, if they're wasting their time on this nonsense at least they aren't voting to do something else expensive and dumb, their normal agenda.

South Bend School Board supports joining Central Time Zone
Resolution urges state to abandon Eastern time in favor of brighter mornings and more productive classes

The South Bend School Board thinks part of the problem with why some kids cannot pay attention in class is, of all things, the clock.

The board approved a resolution Monday evening urging the state of Indiana to abandon the Eastern time zone and start observing Central Standard Time.

“When we wake our kids up when its dark, their bodies are telling them they still need to be in bed. And when the sun doesn't come up until after they're in school, how can we expect them to learn?” said Holly Easterbrook, a South Bend mom who spoke in support of the measure.

A switch to the Central time zone would mean a brighter, safer morning, and more productive school day, some parents argue.

But some board members chose not to vote on the resolution, saying they need to see more research on the topic and hear from more parents.

“I can’t make a choice based on what I’ve heard, it’s not common sense,” said board member Jay Caponigro.

A more practical fix, some board members say, is to move the start time of school later in the day, but that is another whole debate.

According to The Central Time Coalition, a group supporting the time zone change, more than two dozen other school districts passed similar resolutions asking to leave the Eastern time zone.
