If you only had one wish for your child when he/she was born what would you choose?
Over 99% of parents just want a healthy baby when their child is born. Why is it then when it comes to education most parents do not see a value in physical education?
Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer in America. Lack of exercise is considered to be one of the major risk factors for heart disease. Research shows that there is a 90% failure rate for appropriate exercise throughout the adult years if during the teenage years and before students failed to engage in appropriate exercise.
Physical education is the only discipline that addresses all areas of wellness: physical, emotional, social, intellectual, spiritual, environmental, and career.
If you are one of those parents who chose health as the most important thing when your child was born, then continue to make it a priority throughout their lives. Support a quality physical education program!
