HB 189: Physicial Education Requirements

H.B. 189, P.N. 192 (STAIRS) This would amend the Public School Code, Act 14 of 1949, P.L. 30.
All School District pupils would be required to be enrolled in physical education of at least a moderate intensity lasting long enough to provide a significant health benefit. A minimum of 15 minutes of physical education for every 2 ½ hours of instruction time must be provided to elementary students. Exemptions from this requirement would be provided to a student with a disability, medical illness, or who participates in extracurricular athletic activities.

Children are overfed and underexercised. Schools should require more physical education for students able to participate in phys ed.
