Agreed, if your in college you should be responsible enough to go and work out yourself. Your not 10 years old anymore.
When we were swiming we had 5 minutes to change, a few minutes to let the teacher know your there, and the rest get in a pool and do whatever you want. (Swim duhh) At the end we only had 5 minutes to get the hell out of the pool, take a shower in shower room, change, and get to our next class before the bell rings. All that for 5 days a week for 8 weeks!!!! Poor madness...
Now after swiming, Ill tell you that you wont feel like doing biology or anything else but sleep.
Yeah I'm pretty glad for the fact that theres no communal showers.
PE desnt bother me, i think its alot better than sittin in a class being bored to death. At least you get to talk to friends and do stuff. MY PE class is pretty simple. 5 minutes to get changed, 35 minutes to play w/e we are playing and another 5 min to get rechanged. It just doesnt bother me, plus, it helps my overall average because i never get below a 90 with it :).
i really dont see a problem with having to get pe credits because its really not that hard if you dont want to take gym or some sort of sport you can usually take a class outside of school that might be able to get you youyr credits for PE

Something that I forgot to comment on:
At the start of my senior HS year, all incoming freshmen from that year on had to take all four years of P.E. classes, versus the previously established two.
an avrage p.e class for miltonmonkey-
Well, i agree with the guys from the uk when they said they played football (soccer) but thats all my class did. I didnt mind when i first started secondry (high) school. but then im not the biggest of sports fans and im not built for football. that along with the fact at the time i was bout 5 ft and all the other guys i played with were about 6 foot (i was clever for my age so i got bumped up a yr) i was bullied alot becoz of it. One time a guy broke my jaw when he "accidently" flick a hockey ball at my face (bcoz i was so bad at sports, if the sport had a goalie i was that) when he took a shoot.
Although my experiences weren't good ones, i still think PE did me some good, it taught me that most jock guys are assholes and give me alot of confidence speakin to ppl older than myself. It should be kept it the curriculum.
But in saying that, there should be more viarity. constant football and hockey playing isn't good for sum1 in was into blading and martial arts.
forgot to mention something in my huge rant :p
when i asked my teacher about bringing boarding/blading/martial arts into the course, he asked me, "How many boys here do you think would be interested in that crap?"
basically he was saying that becoz the masses wanted football they got it and also that none of the sports i was interested in were sports
We did a wide range of sports at my school.
Also, doing PE at GCSE helped my overall fitness.
PE is not just about being fit though, its about sportsmanship, and learning co-ordination and higher order skills.
I'm on the swim team. I don't have to take PE. :p
