What's the Best Way to Commute to School?

by Amanda M. Fairbanks

August 25, 2010

How do you plan on getting to school and work tomorrow? Join Washington, D.C., Mayor Adrian Fenty, Education Secretary Arne Duncan, and Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee, as they walk to school on Tuesday in the nation's capital. 

Called the "Walking School Bus," it's supposed to promote health and fitness by encouraging more students to walk or bike to school. Turns out, it's good for grown-ups, too. The initiative is an offshoot of the First Lady's Let's Move campaign.

How did you get to school? And for the parents out there, how do you encourage your kids to adopt better commuting habits?
