Gym Class or More Academics?

There is a great divide among educators: Is gym class important or is it more important to have an extra language course, or a computer class, or a math class?  Let's face it, there is a limited amount of time.  We live in a competitive world where people are demanding more and more education, and quicker.  But, according to a report in the British Medical Journal, there may be a middle ground.  In the study, students were randomized to receive their normal three phys ed classes a week or to receive restructured lessons five times a week.  They found exercise clearly takes the day.

We always appreciate your comments and suggestions.  For more information, please go to
