No Running!

… More and more, school PE is suffering from poor resourcing and inconsistent delivery.

For example, many schools in Canada are relying on classroom teachers to teach PE whether they are knowledgeable or comfortable doing so, instead of employing specialists who understand physical literacy and the best way to engage children in physical activity.

No Running is a new documentary that looks at what needs to happen in our schools in order to get physical literacy to be seen as equally important to literacy and numeracy, and interviews the people who are championing the cause.

I tell parents not to count on schools to physically educate their children. An hour spent at Gymnastics is better for motor and physical fitness than any other activity. Far better than an hour in P.E. class.
