Here’s a fun and interesting story from CBS about a San Rafael school adopting standing desks for students. They’re all the rage in workplaces, what with sitting being the new smoking.

What do you all think? Stand all day? Move around? Stay still?  What’s better? Is fidgeting the new exercise? Let me know!
