Canadian Kids Get An F In Activity
My grade three son only has gym class two days out of eight. I thought that he had Daily Physical Activity every day to make up for the activity deficit, but when I asked him about it he had no idea what I was talking about. It's not that I think standing behind a chair stretching and doing some jumping jacks will increase his physical health, but it sends a message that sitting too long is not good for you.
DPA is supposed to be part of kids' daily activities at school, but it looks like the schools are failing to do it.
