My school everyone had to take Gym but if you were on a sports team (Mostly was the football team, cheerleaders, some of the basketball team) you can take for study hall instead where you were supposed to do homework and what not.

Thinking back i think if u had a good GPA you could take it as a "peer tutor" or something like that but they was never in there now that i think of it. mean.gif

I understand this because I hated having trash dudes that were literally just a waste of space on the field/court...

 

But you gotta remember they gotta get some exercise in to.

 

Americans in general are fat as hell.

Skipping. I was pretty smart and had a spanish class that I skipped maybe 90% of the time. Went 10 times tops out of the whole semester.

 

Had the councilor & teacher(s) hook-up to get my passes signed :lol

I kinda like the idea of this.

It's suppose to be fun or at least it was when i was going to school.

It being mandatory won't have much difference on their health if they're lazy or fat. I recall those kids wouldn't even participate in games or sports. Would be half-assing it in the stretching exercises.

So it don't really matter.

The only thing I didn't like about P.E. was having to swim in the spring time where the weather was still freezing. That was my only gripe.

 

Oh and that the PE teacher was my football coach and gave me hell, if I didn't do well in the physical testing lol.

And you think a few periods of gym every week is gonna fix that?

post #41 of 53
Word. 45 min of PE wasn't keeping anyone from being fat. Keep in mind you usually gotta change in to gym clothes and stretch before you play anything so it's real 30 min and that's about equal to lunch time and going outside.

From JHS to HS I got in to the routine of playing basketball after school everyday. Usually 2 hrs no matter the weather the majority of the time. That's what kept me in the best shape of my life laugh.gifpimp.gif

What's the point when you serve kids pizza/burgers/burritos and soda every single day in the school cafeteria.

You never said it was a solution, but you promoted the idea of mandatory PE as if it would have an impact on obesity rates. I've made my point known: I think it's a futile effort.  If you can prove how mandatory PE classes have a positive impact on obesity rates, then have at it by all means.  Until then, I don't see why we should take your opinion seriously.

Absolutely.

This. In either case, it'll probably be their last ounce of physical activity for the rest of their lives laugh.gifmean.gif

AGAIN....where did I even mention obesity?

I simply said I'm all for mandatory physical activity at school...since that's about the only physical activity most kids will have, since now kids learn to use an iPad before they can even walk....would it have an impact on anything?...I don't know and never claimed to know...will it be nice for our kids to engage in physical activities?...why not?..some might enjoy it and want to take it one step further and actually grow up wanting to be active....

I swear some of you dude need to give it a break trying to pull my card every chance you get, looking silly as hell out here picking arguments with me that I never even started laugh.gif

LOL @ Considering the feelings of kids and what they THINK they want/don't want to do. They don't know what they want. But I know what they need. They need to burn. They need to exercise. They NEED that. If they end up fat, out of shape, pillsburry sweat hogs, so what. It won't be because they didn't have the resources provided by their schools.

 

And yea, school lunches need to be healthier for whoever said that. I agree.

I think this was already mandatory for one semester in my HS.

 

If anything though, I feel like a tech class should be mandatory. I didn't take any in high school except one programming elective I chose myself. Nothing else was even technology related which is crazy to me given the world we live in.

Makes so much sense, not sure why they wouldn't make it mandatory. It promotes good health.
post #53 of 53

It should also be optional if you are an athlete though, I had to take pointless gym classes when I could've had free time to go out and grab food instead.

 

Also agree with the comment above on tech. There is not nearly enough effort to get kids to be strong in math or tech these days, which is terrible given the increasing importance of both.
