Let me explain this one a little more. Students don’t exactly want P.E., but I’ve noticed that since my school only requires one year of P.E., students tend to gain weight after freshman year because we just won’t exercise by ourselves. More years of mandatory P.E. just keeps us healthier. Of course, Athletics or Marching Band should be considered P.E. equivalents.
