Spot quiz: What is the only subject matter in school that engages a child’s head, human body, and spirit, encourages their physical and psychological overall health, will help them to learn better and cultivates the character they have to have to grow to be successful adults? And what matter is continuously underfunded, understaffed and underscheduled?

At a time when American little ones are increasingly absorbed in their screens and one-3rd are over weight, the want for strong physical schooling is acute. Last month, the federal government updated its recommendations for bodily exercise for the very first time in 10 yrs. The guidelines now include tips for children as younger as age 3, and advise a least of 60 minutes for each working day of average to vigorous action for ages 6-17.  Alas, only 1 in 5 teenagers meets this standard.
