The topic of my storify is Physical education and more importantly that schools need to incorporate more Phys-ed into their curriculum and their school year. The reason schools need to intervene is due to the increasingly alarming rates of childhood obesity. Science has outlined the dangers of the disease and schools have the power to change this trend of increasing obesity rates.
The reason I chose the passage I did was because I feel it summed up a lot of issues I agree with in a more articulate way. Additionally I hope to be a gym teacher one day and feel strongly about the importance of physical education in schools.
