What do you think schools can do to increase children’s physical activity?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on September 27, 2006
“They should incorporate more hands-on physical activities in the classroom.”
“I think they should encourage them with some kind of reward system. Maybe give them gift certificates for some healthy products.”
“I think it should be part of the curriculum. They should make the parents responsible for getting the kids a certain number of hours of physical activity and have the kids bring in a signed form.”
“Maybe they could hand out fliers with physical activities outside of school, like at the Lawrence Arts Center or through parks and rec.”
