dumbbells-and-jump-rope-thumb2295719

The value of physical education in public schools across America is being scrutinized, particularly in inner-cities like Chicago and Boston.  Many educators, like John McCarthy from the School of Education’s Institute for Athletic Coach Education, are fighting to keep P.E. programs in public school districts because they claim these programs help fight childhood obesity and raise students’ self-esteem.  To hear more about the fight for gym class, please contact McCarthy at coaching@bu.edu or 617-353-0365.
