Students should be doing at least 60 minutes of vigorous or moderate-intensity physical activity at school, with more than half of the activity occurring during regular educational hours and the remaining amount before and after school, says a report released Thursday by the Institute of Medicine.
By Toby Brooks, PhD, LAT, ATC, CSCS, YFS-3 Director of Research & Education, IYCA In today’s tight-budget, high stakes, teach-to-the-test world of secondary education, states and districts have largely forced traditional physical education to the wayside.
