N.D. schools strive for perfection

BISMARCK, N.D. - Ever wanted to be a kid again? Principals and teachers across the state recently had the opportunity to do so as part of the School Retool Program.

They followed a student around for an entire day to get a closer look at what attending their school is really like. Some found that lunch time and changing periods are too short. Others found some students have a tendency to say inappropriate things, or surf the internet during lectures. The point effort is to learn how small changes can improve schools.

“I think that smaller communities actually makes change a lot more possible. We're spending today at Legacy High School in Bismarck and some of the things that have been implemented here are fantastic,” said Mike Strong, a coach at School Retool.

This is part of the School Retool program, which will help better schools across North Dakota.
