The founder of New Zealand's first online high school says selecting school times will always be a fine balancing act.
New South Wales is trialling staggered start and finish times in primary schools, to create more flexibility for families and reduce school rush hour traffic.
The government is being urged to consider a similar trial in New Zealand.
But Crimson Education co-founder Jamie Beaton says told Mike Hosking several factors have to be considered, before school hours are changed.
"The more flexibility introduced into the schooling model, the more challenging it is for the staff to manage. And the other thing to think about is some students just do need a consistent structure in their week."

Dr. Death

We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
