“New PE” Program Seeks To Mobilize Generation Of Sedentary Students


The Washington Post (6/15, Chandler) details how US schools are developing better gym classes for students as “part of a national effort to mobilize a generation that has been labeled the most sedentary in the nation’s history.” The “New PE” program involves “contests that reward students who are the strongest, and exercise doled out (or withheld) as a form of punishment.”
