High-Tech Bus Brings Lessons To Rural Ark. Students

In remote rural areas of Arkansas, school buses shuttle some students for over two hours a day.

To fill these hours with learning, the Hector School District has teamed up with Vanderbilt University to make the buses into "mobile classrooms," the AP reports.

One school bus has received mounted television screens that show math and science programs to students. Seats are equipped with headphones for the children to use.

The test program has now been in place for a month and so far, students seem to be captivated by the educational programming -- and staying out of trouble.

According to another article by the AP, "the school says there've been no discipline write-ups on that bus since the programming was introduced."
