    Students need more physical education
    Many schools in Kane County have a form of physical education. But students are still lacking exercise in their lives. Students aren’t having exercise as we all are led to believe. This is not good, and it will impact the child’s health in the future.The good thing is that there are ways to prevent this. Physical education should be better enforced for both the teachers and the students. This means that the teachers should focus on giving the students more ways to be involved in class instead of slacking off. The class should be longer, so there would be more exercises for students. The reason why is because for some students, this is the only exercise they get for the day.Lastly, students should be more informed in class. The purpose of a class is to learn ways to improve their health. Children need to get more informed of their health to help make their future better because a healthy life is a happy life.Luis Angel DominguezElgin
