PE4Life is a non-profit organization determined to make quality, health-and-wellness-based physical education a reality in our schools on a daily basis.
PE4Life sees three key problems with our nation’s current physical education system:
- The dramatic decline in the number of students taking physical education classes on a daily basis;
- The continued emphasis on the “sports model” of physical education that overemphasizes team sports skill development and participation at the expense of health and wellness education and lifelong physical activity skill development and participation;
- Grading students based on skills and innate athletic abilities versus effort and progress toward individual goals.
