Considering that most of the U.S. is now on Daylight Saving Time for nearly two-thirds of the year, maybe it would make more sense to simply have DST all year round. But then children would be waking up and going to school in the dark.
Aaaah, screw the children.
I live in Massachusetts.
The children get out of school between 2:45 and 3:10 depending on what grade group they are in (K-1, 2-3, 4-5) and the bus doesn't drop them off until 3:45-4.
It will be getting dark at that time within a few weeks. It's already darker when they get home than when they leave for school.
And once again, screw the children!
