Governor John Hickenlooper and U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan joined a crowd of hyper elementary students this afternoon for the best part of the school day -- lunch and recess. And for the two high-profile politicians, that meant cafeteria food, basketball and incredibly awkward group dancing. The event at Lowry Elementary School was part of Duncan's annual "Education Drives America" back-to-school bus tour, highlighting the importance of exercise and nutrition in schools across the country.
