California Elementary School Experimenting With Standing Desks.

NBC Nightly News (10/22, story 11, 2:10, Holt) reported that Vallecito Elementary School in Northern California is combating “the age-old problem of getting kids to sit still and pay attention by not having them sit at all.” The school is using standing desks, after a pilot in a few classrooms last year. “Students can take a seat whenever they are feeling tired and every desk has a fidget bar to keep kids moving.” The piece notes that cost can be a deterrent, but reports that local parents raised the funds to buy the new desks.
