Looks like nap time isn't just for the pre-K kiddos anymore. According to NBC News, high Schools in New Mexico are testing out the use of sleep pods to let students nap between classes.
"It really was beneficial, educationally, to put them in the pod for 20 minutes and send them back to class, rather than have them miss half a day," Sandy Peugh, a school nurse in the district, told the Sante Fe New Mexican. "And it wasn't just kids who had sleep issues. It worked on kids who had anxiety--extremely gifted kids who might have test anxiety. Teachers came in, stressed out, and we'd put them in the pod."
I'm ALL about the sleep pods. I wish we could have them here at work!
