Abstract and Keywords

Increasing academic achievement and promoting behavioral adjustment of children and adolescents are primary missions of schools. Considerable research shows that cognitive functioning and emotion regulation are compromised by insufficient sleep, with deleterious effects for school achievement and behavior. In response to concerns about low achievement, maladaptive behavior, and inadequate sleep, a number of actions are described that schools can take toward improving the sufficiency of sleep in children. For example, observing sleepiness at school may help identify children with sleep disorders; primary and secondary school curricula can be expanded to include the relations of sleep to health and performance; and system-wide policies that facilitate adequate sleep may be considered for change.

Keywords: sleep, school achievement, school behavior, role of schools
