The number of overweight children is at an all time high and the numbers are constantly growing. Strategies to reverse this disturbing trend must be created and put into action. One strategy would be to bring back physical education classes that have been removed from the curriculum of many schools. Instead of downsizing physical education part, teachers should cut back the history of things.
Bring back PE Class
Ideal physical education class would have educational component as well as an activity-based components.
educational component would provide information to the child about nutrition and exercise. The child would learn what to eat and what to do to get and stay healthy. They would also learn why this nutrition and training methods work and how to incorporate them into their daily lives. This knowledge would provide students with a foundation to help them maintain their health through their entire lives.
Activity-based component would provide children fun calorie burning activities. This would help your child maintain a healthy weight. Regular activities that a child would encourage regular activity as adults. Various activities would be tried. Experiments activities would help the child find activities they enjoy. The more activity is fun, the more likely it will be continued. Experiments child would also encourage efforts as an adult.
Get Rid of history class
Physical Education classes have been removed for various reasons, such as lack of facilities, staff, or money. Some i.e. The programs have been reduced because there is just not enough time in the school day to include it in the curriculum. If time is truly the case, they should consider removing other aspects of the curriculum, such as history.
There are thousands of people who have spent a lifetime studying history. However, I have not felt the need for knowledge of the history of my daily life. I’ve never had a life changing moment that has my knowledge of the Boston Tea Party or the Panama Canal. Unless you see your child to be a contestant on the risk that they could probably use a physical education class more than a history class.
boundaries are becoming increasingly blurred. Globalization is increasing as the world becomes interconnected. Knowledge of what happened hundreds of years ago is becoming less useful
history repeats itself
Truth be told, I respect the history. and the American, I respect especially American history. I believe that if history is important if you want to prevent history from repeating itself. However, if I had to choose between physical education class and history class, I would choose the former. Health-care costs in America are rising at an astronomical rate. If we do not take obesity epidemic and focus on disease prevention, America as we know it will be a story.
