Take What You Learn and Run With It

Physical education teachers are encouraging children to use what they are learning in class.

American children are becoming more and more obese and out of shape. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that last year only about 30% of students nationwide attended PE class everyday.

Hudson High School students are required to take a year and a half of PE. But coaches hope they will continue to stay in shape, even after they are done with the classes.

Some coaches say students should have more PE classes, but because of the limited school day and education standards that would probably never happen.
