Hours of Sleep

Ron Paul Homeschool Curriculum

The National Sleep Foundation recommends that teenagers get at least 9 hours of sleep a day.

Some teens prefer an afternoon nap and less time in bed overnight. There is nothing wrong with this. People are different. One size does not fit all — as homeschoolers understand.

A great advantage of homeschooling is that it allows late-risers to do their school work without fighting their biological clocks.

My curriculum limits time spent in structured education to no more than five hours a day. Some parents add time for physical education.

Most homeschool curriculum programs limit the hours spent in formal learning. Furthermore, these programs are more efficient than classroom-based education. There are no school buses. No one takes roll.

Just make sure that “lights out” does not mean “video games on.”
