 STARTING SCHOOL LATER IN THE MORNING IS BETTER FOR TEENAGERS

Long-term studies have found that teens need 8.5 to 9.5 hours of sleep each night, but almost half of teens get less than 6 hours of sleep.  One suggestion to encourage more teen sleep that is being widely discussed is shifting the start time of secondary schools to later in the morning.   Members of LWV-Haverford Township have been involved in these discussions.   The president of the Radnor League of Women Voters Roberta Winters  (center front in picture below) recently met with PA State Representative Alex Charlton to discuss the push for later school start times.

We organize Candidate Forums for contested local offices during both the primaries and general elections.  

             The League of Women Voters -Haverford Township sponsored two public forums for candidates running for the 163rd and 166th state legislative districts during the November 2016  General Election.

Forums are free and open to the public. In addition to opening and closing presentations from the candidates, both forums allow time for questions from the audience. The League of Women Voters encourages all civic-minded residents to attend these forums.
