School used to start on the day after Labor Day. But many kids have already been in classes for week. School isn't just starting earlier in the calendar, an estimated 40 percent of high schools start before 8am, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. That organization has just recommended that schools start no earlier than 8:30. Right now only 15 percent of high schools do that. So what's the rush?
