Want Smarter, Healthier Kids? Try Physical Education!

I had the privilege to meet Paul Zientarski some years back while presenting at the Dupage County workshop in Naperville, Illinois. I was not surprised to learn of his TEDtalk and I could not think of a better advocate for our profession.  It has currently been viewed over 82,000 times. Worth the watch and another great tool for advocating for what is best for kids.

Quality, daily physical education in schools not only reduces obesity amongst our children, but it improves academic performance. With more than 40 years in the field of education, Zientarski has created a highly successful program called the Learning Readiness Physical Education (LRPE) program at Naperville Central High School.
