DO YOU KNOW THAT MORE PHYSICAL EDUCATION LEADS TO HIGHER TEST SCORES?

Studies indicate that kids who exercise more..

•Perform better academically•Students who met or exceeded guidelines for vigorous physical activity earned higher grades•Improved their concentration and classroom behavior•Strengthen peer relationships, self-esteem and self confidence

 

DESPITE KNOWING THE BENEFITS OF PHYSICAL EDUCATION…•Most NYC schools have 1 physical education teacher for every 800 students!•Most schools are way short of guidelines on allotted time for physical activity•Many schools have little gym space and lack certified physical education teachers•According to NYC Comptroller John Liu "NYC Schools are Failing Gym"

HOW CAN WE GET GYM BACK TO NYC SCHOOLS?

Join other parents and passionate physical education teachers in working on bringing change to hundreds of schools. Together  we can  make the people who make decisions hear how important physical education is to children across the city!
