Over a year ago, West Virginia announced plans
to incorporate Dance Dance Revolution
into the physical education curriculum in all of their 765 public schools. Today, the New York Times takes a look at their progress, with nearly all of the state's 185 middle schools already outfitted with the obesity-battling leg-shaking simulator and the remainder of the 765 due to receive theirs by next year. While the article goes over the regular praise for exergaming
-- namely, getting sedentary kids off their do-nothing keisters -- it's a welcome update on one state's ambitious plans. Huge bonus points to the first state that requires kids to play Devil May Cry
with that DDR pad.
