How a Phys Ed Program Transformed One School
May 04, 2010
At Naperville Central High School, west of Chicago, children who are having problems with math or reading go to gym class first. And exercise isn't just restricted to the gym -- there are bikes and balls in the classrooms, and the children are in constant motion.
The results are amazing -- reading scores have doubled, and math scores are up by a factor of 20.
Research shows that after 30 minutes on the treadmill, students solve problems up to 10 percent more effectively.
