Should Schools Eliminate Mandating Physical Education Classes? No: Physical Education Equally Important as Academics.
Feigley, David A.
School Administrator, v47 n2 p15,17,20 Jan 1990
The key to good health and longevity is a physically active lifestyle, not an early career of varsity sports or sporadic flurries of fitness training. Evidence shows that young children who receive daily physical education show significant academic improvement. Beneficiaries of mandated programs are the least likely to participate in voluntary programs. (MLH)
