Why Need Physical Education For Children?
Many studies have demonstrated the positive effects of physical education and physical activity on school performance. Several studies have stated that providing increased time for physical activity can lead to better concentration, reduced disruptive behaviors and higher test scores in reading, math and writing .
Physically fit students are less likely to miss school, partake in risky behaviors and more which are all associated with better outcomes in school. The program also promotes physical activity outside of school and rewards children for engaging in physical activity with their families.
It has also been proven that when students are involved in a physical activity program, there is an "improved rate of academic learning per unit of class time" and that increased time spent in physical education does not negatively effect student scores.
