Legislature should restore PE

    It’s not often that I get involved politically, but an issue affecting Oregon’s children compels me to speak out.

    During the past couple of decades, we have seen a decline in physical education classes as part of the school day in Oregon. It is no coincidence that this decline has coincided with a rise in obesity rates as well as kids having more problems concentrating in the classroom.

    We have an opportunity to turn things around, thanks to Senate President Peter Courtney, chief sponsor of legislation that would restore PE as part of our children’s school day.
