While a music-obsessive and self-professed choir geek, I have to agree with this statement. I think that any food served/vended in a school should not only be healthy, but should be setting a healthy example. I also thing that physical education should literally BE physical education and that sports should be separate from Gym/PE class. It should be some kind of hybrid health class/working out on gym equipment class.

I know in HS I would have been MUCH LESS apt to sit out gym if it wasn't REQUIRED for me to do things that humiliated me or that I hated (Like play basketball). If, however, the class taught the fundamentals of a healthy lifestyle (exercise at least ___ times a week for ___ minutes) and then provided the opportunity IN SCHOOL to fulfill those requirements, I'd have done it. Like, you get credit for the day for working out using a treadmill/elliptical, weight machines, etc. There should also be an option to fulfill cardio requirements by going outside for the class period to play the aforementioned games with an adequate supervisor (teacher or aide.)

I also think that it should be, in a sense, made light of. I don't know if that makes sense. Like, if using the gym at school was "no big deal" and "everyone did it" - than less people would be made fun of for doing so. Know what I mean?

Anywho, that's my two cents.

Also agree, I think for some other classes to include there should be some kind of required one-semester class in senior year that teaches people how to manage a household, balance a budget, write a resume and cover letter, and do job interviews.  I would have LOVED to have help with that instead of learning the hard way.

I also think that, of course depending on what country you're in so I'll use the US as an example, civics should be taught on some level at least from when they know how to read.  Even if its just kindergartners learning a boiled-down version of the Declaration of Independence or the Bill of Rights civics should be MUCH more integrated into the curriculum than it already is and not just a one-semester senior class.  When you have polls where up to half of the high school kids responding say that they think Freedom of Speech goes "too far" you know there's SOMETHING wrong with what kids are being taught.
