To address the growing problem of child obesity in the country, the Department of Health (DOH) has made a suggestion to the Department of Education (DepEd) to lengthen physical education classes in schools all over the country. DepEd should do this or think of other ways to teach our younger generation to live a healthier lifestyle.
There are some instances where kids don’t enjoy their PE class. Not everyone likes basketball, some have two left-feet so they screw up their dancing class even with the accompaniment of lively music. DepEd should have the option of letting kids choose the PE class that they want to attend to make them enjoy, and not hate, the PE class extensions.
