Why so many kids can’t sit still in school today

Why so many kids can’t sit still in school today | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
A pediatric occupational therapist says schools keep kids in their chairs far too long.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

This makes so much sense. I also think the pressure on teachers to explain why a student is failing and the push to blame all failures on teachers also plays into both the lack of physical activity, poor self images, and referrals for ADHD. There is nearly a zero tolerance for kids to be off task or day dreaming at any age these days.


Adults facing these same lifestyle situations generally just get unhealthy eventually or find ways to break out of the molds and earn a living. This is a really bad situation for children when all our lives including the children's lives seems to be centered around making everyone fit the lean manufacturing model. The public education system is being forced to become job training focused more and more. The idea of developing a whole person seems to be fading away. Experiences or people that don't fit the plan are frowned upon these days.
