    A new study showed that for every 15 minutes of exercise, kids grades improved by a quarter a grade.

    A new study out of the UK found that regular exercise leads to improved academic performance in teens--particularly with girls in science subjects.   The study found that children who exercise not only performed better in English, math, and science at age 11, but continued improvement on their exams at 13 and 16. And for every 15 minutes of exercise, they saw a quarter of a grade improvement.  So they said, an hour of daily exercise could theoretically lift scores by a full grade.
