Do Missoula School Kids Need Sleep Pods?

I have some friends who teach, and they’d probably say that some of their students already treat their classes like a sleep pod.

But kinder, gentler curriculum are more the norm than when those of us from different generations were in school. And that’s fine. There are even more therapeutic ways for a “time out.”

AP says that “sleep pods” have been installed at a few schools in the Las Cruces, New Mexico, area. Students can lie on recliners and listen to music while colorful lights shine inside. Oh! It’s like when I was a kid and I’d shine my black light on my “Ain’t gonna work on Dizzy’s Farm no more” poster. Sorry. I digress.

New Mexico State University in Las Cruces received a federal grant to buy the pods, which they donated to area high schools. Their studies indicate agitated kids are responding well to them. Maybe they had an argument with someone or got bullied a bit. A 20-minute time out and they’re able to return to class in a better state of mind.

Sleep well, kids, but do good learnin’.  Don’t go back to the 60s in your pod like Austin Powers did.
