Geography Div (SchoolDaze subsection)

 Seems like the MiniBears partied too much for the holidays and didn't get a post in for 1 Jan   - -  well, it was a holiday.

Time for them to get back to school and study their geography.... but when ??

  • 7:30 a.m. – Louisiana’s sleepy-eyed students shuffle into class.
  • 7:36-7:45 a.m. – Lessons start at public high schools in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Nevada, and New Hampshire.
  • 7:46-7:55 a.m. – It is not even 8:00 a.m. yet, but high school students are already taking classes in Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
  • 7:56-8:05 a.m. – Now it is the turn of high schoolers in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Indiana, Kansas, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Utah, and Washington.
  • 8:06-8:15 a.m. – Well past the hour, students file into class in Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Kentucky, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia, and Vermont.
  • 8:16-8:25 a.m. – Just two states start school this late: Iowa and Minnesota. But they are not the latest.
  • 8:26-8:35 a.m. – That is how late high school starts in Alaska and South Carolina. But wait…
  • Only in Washington DC, Alaska, and South Carolina does the school day start at or after the recommended earliest time of 8:30 a.m.
