Physical Education

Over the past decade, physical education (PE) has become less common in schools across the nation. Only half of high school students attend a PE class in an average week. At the same time, mounting research shows that physical activity during the school day can lead to better academic performance, as well as a lower risk of obesity. Policymakers in many states—including Maryland, New Jersey, New York, and Oklahoma—are looking to make physical activity a greater part of the school day. Council for a Strong America is backing efforts to expand PE in schools, educating state leaders about the connection between physical education, a healthy citizenry, and improved military eligibility.
