Posted by:

• A National Sleep Foundation Poll found 87% of U.S. high school students were getting less than the recommended hours of sleep on school nights

• The CDC's 2017 Youth Risk Behavior Survey showed that 75.4% of U.S. high school students get fewer than 8 hours of sleep on school nights, and 43% get 6 or fewer hours. This is an increase from the 2011, 2013 and 2015 surveys.
