Some Hoosiers Trying To Change Indiana To Central Time

A group that wants to move all of Indiana into the Central Time Zone is taking its push to the State Board of Education. The President of the Central Time Coalition says the academic performance of students in the 80 Indiana counties that observe Eastern time can suffer because they're often sleepy from awakening an hour earlier than their Central time zone counterparts. The group also repeated the point that students are also put at risk waiting for buses in the pre-dawn darkness. It's been a point of contention since 2009, when a 15-year-old student was fatally struck by a bus on a dark January morning.
