All in a good night’s sleep: How quality of sleep impacts academic performance in children

A good night’s sleep is linked to better performance by schoolchildren in math and languages — subjects that are powerful predictors of later learning and academic success, according to a study. The researchers reported that «sleep efficiency» is associated with higher academic performance in those key subjects. Sleep efficiency is a gauge of sleep quality that compares the amount of actual sleep time with the total time spent in bed.
