Alison Buttenheim is cited in a new article written by Isabel Fattal in The Atlantic about the complexities of policy change as it relates to school start times. Although people are not in agreement about what time high school should actually start, it is clear that many are slow to challenge the status quo. Buttenheim and a team of researchers wrote "Applying behavioral insights to delay school start times" published in Sleep Health. They suggest 4 strategies to influence decision-making processes and demonstrate how they can be applied to efforts aimed at changing school start time policies. Read the Atlantic article here.
