We are required to take PE I&II to graduate, unless you do a sport, marching band, or are in one of the competing show choirs (because they dance so much) and then you can waive out of one PE course. If you take it during the school year its every other day due to our block schedule. Most kids take PE I the summer before freshman year and waive out of PE II, but I'm taking PE II this summer before sophomore year. Its four hours four days a week and it starts this coming monday. Its a good way to meet people before you start high school, and the teachers aren't as tough in the summer. I don't mind gym that much, except running kills me. It's boring and painful.

No. I think that is a bad idea- honestly I HATE PE I feel so forced to do things that I can't do! I think this would have an opposite effect- more kids would have bad grades because they don't want to do it- so they don't.I get points docked everyday in PE because I can't go all the way down to 90 degrees on my push-ups. Yeah. I am a straight A student so this hurts my grade really bad! Also school is supposed to prepare us for having jobs and living in the 'real world', if they take an elective away from us how are we going to find out what our interests are? I do understand the importance of being healthy and all, but forcing kids to do isn't going to change anything- in fact it could make kids have a negative image with exercise. I think my high school has the right idea, if you do a sport it counts as a PE credit, or if you are in the spring Musical- which I like! But that's just my opinion.

We have gym every day in seventh and eighth grade at my school, which means that everyone tries to exert themselves as little as possible to avoid being sweaty and gross the whole rest of the day. Also, one trimester is spent on health, meaning we get no exercise in gym class 33% of the school year. We do have electives.

yes! in addition to preparing kids for life, they should make it so that they can be healthy and be able to do stuff. it's hard to be efficient if you are overweight

well my at my school, gym's a core class but we can take gym for a month in the summer for a year's credit (which is what i do) i just don't like messing up my hair and having to change in and out of my outfit and getting sweaty because my school doesnt give us enough time to shower

We have it every other day every day.

Personally i actually kind of like this idea. For many kids, this is the only time of the day they get exercise. But, i also think sports should count as gym credits. @ my high school, we can try out a sport for a week and then switch if we want to. I just do track and cc cause it's easy. But when you complete a season, you should get credit for gym because you just kicked your butt doing something you love.
