Gym classes are being sacrificed across the country to save money and satisfy federal mandates stressing test scores in math and reading.
A little more than half of students nationwide are enrolled in a physical education class, and by high school only a third take gym class daily, according to the National Association for Sport and Physical Education.
And it’s not like most kids are making up for lost gym classes by working out on their own time. More than 60 percent of children aged 9 to 13 do not participate in any organized physical activity during their non-school hours, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported in August. And 23 percent do not engage in any free-time physical activity at all. Translation: Fewer kids are playing outside.
At the Y, we offer fitness opportunities for children of all ages.
