We’re Supporting Health Ed and PE!

“Unfortunately, many schools today do not provide adequate health education or physical education, as recommended by leading health-related national organizations and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Subjects that are not considered “core” under the current law, are frequently at risk of being marginalized and eventually eliminated due to a lack of funding or administrative priority.”

In a call to include health education and physical education in the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), COPC has joined dozens of organizations across the country in asking Congress to recognize health ed and PE as parts of a well rounded education and allow schools to use Title I and II funds to support these areas.
