I'm not too happy with the fact that my daughters' middle school only allows one elective and PE is considered an elective. Since one of my daughters is in choir she doesn't have PE. I think that is extremely misguided! Aren't we in the middle of a national health crisis because of our sedentary lifestyles? When I was in Jr High I was in choir as an elective, and everyone had art and PE as a part of the cirriculum. I can't believe the schools think daily exersise is merely an option! Whatever happened to a well rounded education that tried to develop the whole person? Sorry teachers, I know it's not your fault, it's the fault of the policy makers. No wonder so many people are turning away from the public school system. A liberal arts, well rounded education has given way to preparing children for a sedentary life sitting behind a computer. I think that is wrong.
