Maine Senate Mulls Daily PE Requirement

The AP (5/16) reports that the Maine state Senate is debating a bill designed to reduce childhood obesity by requiring "students from kindergarten to grade five to participate in a minimum of 30 minutes of daily physical activity at school." Noting that the state DOE has remained neutral, the AP reports that the "Maine School Nutrition Association supported it, saying the focus of obesity prevention so far has been food, and the bill starts to address the role of physical activity as well."
