Welcome To PE Positive

This is the first of many posts that I hope will enlighten you on the positive effects that physical education has on individuals, families, and school environments. As many individuals are aware in this unprecedented time because of budget downfalls in schools’ across the United States  physical education is continually a discipline fighting the chopping block. It also faces pressure because of the focus on No Child Left Behind. Administrators are looking for more time during the school day to focus on reading and math and subsequently arts and physical education are areas that often times are cut to allow for more time in the core areas. 

My goal is to share with you reasons that physical education time should not be an area that is cut. There are many positive effects that can be gained by students who are healthy, active, and physically fit. I believe that physical educators need to be well informed of the data that supports our discipline, make sure that their programs are quality programs, and to be aware of the legislation that is out there trying to fight the childhood obestity crisis.
