I am a middle school teacher in the Little Rock School District. We read the article "Take It Outside" [Comment, March/April]. I started a walking program in October 2003. As of May 2004, we have walked 140 miles as a class. The kids were featured in the district’s newsletter. We walk 20 minutes a day anytime the weather will allow.

Our [students have] shown great improvement in their learning. Attentiveness in class, behavior, and attitudes have greatly improved as a result of this program. All it takes is a will to get off our butts and on our feet. It’s time we put the "physical" back into education.
