Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a new law on Sunday evening that bans California public high schools from starting before 8:30 a.m. and prohibits middle schools from beginning before 8 a.m.

This will make California the first state in the nation to mandate the later start times.

The proposal was designed to make a positive impact on educational outcomes by giving students more time to sleep.

Teachers and school districts opposed the law, arguing the decision on when to start school should be left to local officials.
