Schools told to get kids moving

    The legislature has told Oregon schools to restore physical education to keep children from getting too fat.

    It’s not clear how much of a difference the mandate makes. In Albany schools, for instance, middle schools already provide the amount of PE demanded by House Bill 3141, according to Maria Delapoer of the school district office.

    The bill, which Gov. Ted Kulongoski signed last week, gives schools 10 years to offer at least 150 minutes a week of PE in kindergarten through fifth grade, and 225 minutes in grades six through eight. At least half the time has to be in “actual physical activity.”
