All I can say is that I wasn't a fan of gym.

I passed the presidential physical fitness test and got an award, there was no need for me to be in gym. None.


Ask not what your country can do FOR you; ask what they are about to do TO YOU!!

I did more in chores after school in one week than most people did in a month. I didn't need it.

Plus I'm still fit.

All I had was some dorky jock coach, masquerading as a teacher, telling me I had to be a skin.

Not having to take gym would have been a blessing beyond measure.

Have you seen how fat most kids are?

Health requirements have been gone a long time.

Just because they are taking the requirement out at a state level doesn't mean that school systems can't still keep these functions in their schools if their local resident's think that it's important. So what's the big deal??
