Anyway the thread is about PE (Physical education) Do we need it? What do you all think about it?

CNN- http://www.cnn.com/2005/EDUCATION/01/18/pitiful.physed.ap/index.html

That is exactly how my school is. All we ever did in PE was either play whatever the heck we wanted, or sit on a bench. Sometimes we had to go swim. All the coaches ever did was sit their fat *** in a chair all day not moving an inch. And getting paid big bucks for that.

Discuss...

Well the P.E. at my school is totally different. Everyone is required 2 years of P.E. One semester of Life fitness where you do weight training aerobics 2.25 runs and tests about muscle groups. Wel also have health which is about nutrition and diseases. We can choose what we want for the other 3 semesters. Taking away P.E. in the fattest country on the planet is idiotic. Most P.E. This is one of the reasons America is getting so fat. Instead of cancelling P.E. where it is run poorly they need to fix it. Oh and P.E. teachers aren't paid the "big bucks". They make like 30 grand. Or at least in Washington they do. It seems like the school in the more metropolitan areas have much better P.E.

our P.E. classes were always good. We always have done a lot of running (running is good, don't let anyone tell you otherwise). In elementary, the schools here do quite a lot of different activities that develop all parts of fitness. In middle school we ran some more. In high school we are required to take PE once every year we're there. It does a really good job. We have weight lifting, a lot of endurance building that helped a lot (though I only ended up getting a 6:11 mile time :( ), and we do all sorts of crap. Also we have lots of optional classes like a full-time weight lifting course, a different courses about actual health, and all sorts of other things. I think we have it pretty good here as far as phys ed goes . . . . the teachers don't do squat . . . but we do . . . that's what counts . . . .

Stealth3Do we need it?[/quote] Yes. Otherwise, a lot more kids would have, as you put it, fat ****s. What would also be good would be actually making sure that schools do what they're supposed to do in PE. I know our PE classes were far from 'lie around in the sun and enjoy yourselves', they pushed it hard at my school. It needs to be so at every school. [quote=Stealth3]What do you all think about it?

With more kids just not going outside at all anymore, let alone exercising, I think it could be the only exercise a lot of kids get. Assuming their PE teacher gives them some exercise to do, of course. As such it should not only be more strictly enforced by the government, but the minimum number of hours per week of PE should probably be increased. An hour a day would be good.

well im in Houston and we were ranked the fattest city, again, and so i can see why they require you to get a pe credit but I doubt it helps any. I know several people who fail gym, i have no idea how you can do that but i guess its possible.

My physed class was the shit, it consisted mainly of dodge ball, and running through the woods playing some cat and mouse game. We got a great workout and it was so much fun. :)

I have 90 minutes of PE per week, my is teacher doing a good job too. IMO PE is very important, not only because it prevents fatness, if you don't work out when you're young you'll have hell when you are old.
