Schools don't require students to have access to P.E, why is that, do teachers don't care about kids getting fat? We all see fat kids get bullied in are life. If we get P.E we wouldn't worry about being over weighted, and just continue being healthy.

Instead of forcing students to be apart of a class that they are uncomfortable with, maybe school should incorporate healthier foods in the cafeteria and stop students from bringing unhealthy foods to school. This would cause better eating habits, which would be a better way of preventing diabetes and obesity.

I think PE should be required for every body can many kid are athletic but many don't get the chance to go outside maybe cause grade but PE helps us kids be more athletic and healthy when we go outside also according to my research Getting that recommended exercise outdoors can help ease emotional and mental pain while improving mood. There are several physical responses our bodies have to being in nature. Sitting outside can reduce blood pressure, lower heart rate, and decrease cortisol levels.

I agree that PE should be required my fact towards that is " it is important for young students to stay physically fit." And it will make them more healthier. also... "The rise of obesity in young children has become a growing" mostly. And another fact is " Without the knowledge and prior experience, we may be setting our children up to make unhealthy choices which will follow them right into adulthood." which is true.

staying active helps ur mind grow Regular exercise changes the brain to improve memory, thinking skills. There are plenty of good reasons to be physically active. Big ones include reducing the odds of developing heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Maybe you want to lose weight, lower your blood pressure, prevent depression, or just look better and gives u the nutrients that u need, it also helps u to stay ready

P.E should be required because children/teens need to be able to have somewhere where they can run around and exercise, when people may not have it.

PE should be required because the other subjects are important.

Multiple studies of various aspects of mental functioning have concluded that exercise, especially aerobic exercise (like running, bicycling, and brisk walking) improve brain function.

Generally the improved mental function is only associated with exercise that raises your heart rate for twenty minutes or more.

The benefits include:

- Improved memory

- Improved reasoning

- Faster decision making and reaction times

- Improved mood

- Less emotional volatility

- improved self-esteem, regardless of whether there was muscle gain or weight loss.

If students exercise every day, raise their heart rates for long enough to garner the mental benefits, then students will be able to learn better, remember what they learned, do better class work, and do it more easily.

well, if the number is 18%, then maybe we should consider changing food served in the cafeteria to be healthier and prevent students from bringing unhealthy snacks to school. This could help reduce the number of obesity AND not have to force students into taking a PE class that they are not comfortable with.

There is plenty of judgement. Consider when kids get picked last to play a sport in PE because other kids don't think they play good enough, or what about kids that sweat a lot, so they feel like other kids will make fun of them if they go outside and start to sweat.

People that are suffering from heart disease probably have other things causing this, other than participating in a physical education class. Heart disease could be more caused from bad eating habits.

Kids can play outside at home, or even join a city sport league to help them get physical activities into their daily lifestyle. This means that PE is not essential for every student in school- there are other options available
