Times are tough, and because of budget cuts and pressure for higher test scores, Gym class could be a "thing of the past".

 

It was reported by the Center of Disease Control and Prevention, that nearly half of high schools across the nation do not have P.E. in a given week.

 

Seriously?  You can't talk about high school "back in the day" without some funny/weird story about the high school gym teacher!

 

It should also be noted that New Jersey’s childhood obesity rate is among the highest in the nation.  Just sayin.

 

What do you think?  In the name of budget cuts and concentration on other school subjects.......
