Physical education is as vital a component of the school day as classroom time, but it is constantly losing its value. School system regulations, conflicting program implementation by teachers, and student engagement are the backbone of the problem and the first sources of the solution. Many urban school systems often struggle to find the balance between meeting academic quotas while maintaining a balanced school environment that includes recreational time. In efforts to improve test scores, some school systems have considered shortening, or eliminating physical education. However, what they fail to realize is the proper physical education can help students reach their full academic potential and exhibit positive behavior in the classroom (Strong et al., 2005).

School cooked lunches aren’t exactly healthy either and many choices children make, parents don’t know about. Also, the media has a big impact on how child and teens eat.

Burnout occurs from both physical and psychological factors over time. In the article written by James Mandigo he mentions how specializing in a sport will make you miss out on all the other sports around you. As well it mentions some of the negative side effects that are common with early specialization such as burnout, social isolation, and overuse injuries just to name a few. It is also noted that many higher and/or elite level athletes participated in many other sports before they started to specialize in a certain area. The article is focused at a parental audience trying to inform them that it is okay for their child to be apart of multiple sports at a young age, which allows them to draw from a wider range of skills.
