“Red Light, Green Light”This article on the state of physical education in the Portland, Oregon school systems is sadly reminiscent of many news stories I hear from around the country these days. In a time of budget crisis, the physical education programs are getting cut across the board, across the country. This, despite the fact that obesity in children is rising every year and physically active kids are less likely to be obese and more likely to perform better academically. Does it make sense to “save” money now only to have insurance rates go up as the number of unhealthy children rises? Or does it make more sense to be preventative and teach children healthy active lifestyles?
