Race to the Top!

National Competition to Advance School Reform is Afoot… but?
Education Secretary Arne Duncan has announced the $4.35 billion dollar ‘Race to the Top’ program leading the way to school reform and innovation in classrooms, I wonder whether effective body brain enhancing methods featured on this Body-brain Boogie Blog, using exercise and movement to effectively build academic performance skills will be in the mix?

Read the press release. What do you think? Are we about to see more recess, Physical Education, and evidence-based methods using art, music, and movement to build academic performance skills… or is money going to be pumped into more extensive Testing and Awarding pursuits. Hearing Arne Duncan on the PBS Newshour enthusiastically refer to the Institute for Learning, I fear that Effort-based Education will be guiding the process.

When are we going to embrace Neuroeducation… and utilize the science showing how the body brain works best?
