FITNESS: FROM THE EARS DOWN
Ask the average elementary classroom teacher of an 8-year-old youngster what basic physical skills the child should have at that age level and how she would go about developing those skills. Ask her how she would develop pelvic girdle or shoulder girdle strength in this 8-year-old. She is completely inadequate to the task and will tell you so.
Now, why does she feel so inadequate? Because, aside from making sure the child does not break his neck falling from the slide during recess, she has been trained to view her responsibility as educating the child from the ears up only.
FITNESS: THE EDUCATED BODY
One hope and perhaps the solution for a better physically fit America: that all colleges and universities require for entrance physical education credits as they now do in English, history, mathematics, etc.
