The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network of Wisconsin is supporting a bill that would raise physical education requirements for Wisconsin elementary and middle school students.
Cancer Society spokesperson Allison Miller says something
needs to change when one in four Wisconsin high school students is
overweight or obese. Miller says the bill would add 30 to 45 minutges of physical
activity for kindergarten through eighth grade if students are not enrolled in a gym
class. Currently K-6 students have physical education classes three times a week….just
once a week for 7th and 8th grade students. Miller was a guest on AM 1170 WFDL's Between the Lines program.
