I have some fond memories of elementary school. I had a rad Garfield lunchbox. My jelly bracelet collection was long enough to jump rope with. And I could have kicked your butt on the handball court.
Health experts recommend 30 minutes of daily physical education for elementary school students, and 45 minutes for those in junior high and high school.
But in a recent CDC study, less than 4% of elementary schools, less than 8% of middle schools and just over 2% of high schools required daily PE for all students for the entire school year.
It's sad!! What do you guys think? Do you remember things being different? Or am I just remembering my childhood in the 80's with rose colored glasses?
