The search is on

Perhaps it’s a season of “searching for something that works in schools” that has spilled over from the disastrous Common Core State Standards rollout, but educators are floating all kinds of ideas.

Some schools are testing standing desks.

At least one governor has proposed longer school days.

Other schools have eliminated recess, while others are filling classrooms with exercise bikes so students can exercise while they read.

The unanswered question remains: What will help kids learn?
