In December we started a two-month look at why physical activity and physical education (PA & PE) are critical to educating the whole child. We are examining the research about the need for PA & PE; exploring some of the recent criticism; examining the relationship between PA & PE and academic achievement, engagement, and social and emotional health and learning; and considering how physical activity can be expanded across the day.

Catch up on this topic, starting with the Whole Child Podcast on PE, Recess, and Beyond: The Implications of Movement, with moderator Sean Slade, director of ASCD Healthy School Communities, and guests

Then, check out recent posts on physical activity and physical education on the Whole Child Blog and share your thoughts. Have you seen a decrease in physical activity and physical education in your school and community? What is the effect on young people in your life?
