Having a steady amount of physical activity each day will do wonders for kids down the road. The benefits are tremendous and can lower risk of diabetes, lower blood pressure, and lower chance of obesity. In schools across the United States, physical education has been substantially reduced and in some cases completely eliminated in response to budget concerns and pressures to improve academic test scores. Yet the available evidence shows that children who are physically active and fit tend to perform better in the classroom, and that daily physical education does not adversely affect academic performance. Schools can provide outstanding learning environments while improving children’s health through physical education.
The article “Advantages & Disadvantages of P.E In Schools” by Marie Anderson from the web page classroom.synonym.com says, “According to the shape of the national report published of the National Association for Sport and Physical Education website, regular physical activity can help prevent serious medical issues like cardio vascular disease, diabetes, and obesity.” This means that if students do P.E. and get regular exercise, it can help them get into a healthy habit of exercising, which could help prevent possibly life threatening medical issues in the future.

In any event, P.E should be mandatory, because regular physical activity can help prevent any future medical

Exercise and sleep are controlled by the individual and incumbent on the motivation of the student. We know that countries who extend their school year have more success with test scores. Adding quality education time to the American school year can have a positive effect on all students but specifically those who struggle academically. Lastly, the involvement of parents in the education of their children will not only have a positive influence on the students scores but also on their children 's self image and motivation. Education allows you to think for yourself and communicate with others.
Breaks like these give student and teachers much needed time to blow off the anger built up inside of them. The environment of schools with year-round schedules is much better because of it since students don’t have that anger built up inside of them and teachers are not frustrated at the students as much, “ Teachers who work for year-long schools say that it gives them a break when they are on the verge of a meltdown.” (Long). It also lowers the amount of students who get in trouble at school, "I haven 't had one student sent to the office all week. And I know why. We 've just had two weeks off, everyone is refreshed, remotivated and their fire has been rekindled."
