My mom and I were having an interesting conversation while watching the Biggest Loser tonight.
Well, not really a conversation, I suppose. It basically went like this:
Mom: *Sigh* I wish our school systems would make it mandatory for middle and high schoolers to have physical education every year!
Me: I don't! That would be horrible! Besides, once you reach 12 you have already decided if you want to work out or not.... so if they don't want to participate, believe me, they'll find a way!
Yup, that was it.
So, my question is, what do you think? Should physical education be a mandatory part of every grades education, for middle and high school?
Is that the most effective way to use our education dollars, and, quite frankly, the time?
Let me know, I'd love to hear what you think!
