Someone finally figured it out!

Gee, this study is about 30 years overdue! It didn't take a rocket surgeon to figure this one out!

Study: Teacher Sleep Deprivation Costs $100 Billion Annually Report

A new study from Ball State University shows U.S. teachers are suffering from a lack of sleep and admit to being impaired in the classroom. The trend is costing businesses more than $100 billion annually due to workplace accidents, decreased productivity and absenteeism. Nearly a fourth of teachers say their teaching skills are significantly diminished and half admit to missing work or making errors due to a serious lack of sleep. The study also found 44.9 percent of respondents work part-time jobs. Researchers say many teachers are forced to coach, farm, run a family business or work a second job just to pay the bills.

That explains much of my high school education, except for one chemistry teacher, of course.
