Pedal Power In Schools

pedal-powerMartin Middle School in North Carolina, USA has introduced pedal power into their classrooms  to get pupils focus more. Bike pedals have been put under the desk as a way to divert students energy. Bethany Lambeth who teaches maths at the school said it has led to a outstanding increase in their grades. "Because students are sitting still all day long they start to get restless and start tapping their desk and their feet are moving about," she said. Having the quiet bike pedals under the desks allow students to use up that energy, and at the same time focus on class. What do you think? Should we bring this to New Zealand?
