A new Rand Corporation study recommends something school children all across our nation have been arguing for years... Kids should be allowed to sleep in on school days.

FOX's Gary Baumgarten reports:

It's a scene repeated in households coast-to-coast. First the alarm goes off...

Then our kids turn it off and go back to sleep. Until, as Marty McFly so famously declared in 'Back to the Future':

"I'm late for school!"

Irritating mom's and dad's... But wait, the new Rand Corporation study finds that starting school later would be a good thing. Resulting, it finds, in higher academic performance and get this, reduced car crash rates. And that it would improve public health and the economy.

Concluding that delaying the sound of an alarm ringing could, believe it or not, pump more than $9 billion into the economy every year!
