I have something to say about this.
The way P.E. is done should be improved.
P.E. is not inherently bad, but you can overexert yourself to the point where bad things happen.
Personally, I've gone through one minor heat stroke from trying to meet the minimum requirements in that "class".
But people NEED it.
My state and my city need P.E.
If nothing else, because of the fact that 53% of the children in my vicinity are OBESE, and they sure as hell aren't exercising outside of school.
We need to make stuff like this mandatory, but also add a nutrition unit to it. We can't change their priorities, but we sure as hell can make them see that if you don't eat right then you will falter running even one fourth of a mile.
I used to be that kid... now I'm running my second marathon.
As for the time component of it, I found that P.E. helped me prioritize my time and my GPA shot up to perfection.
But that's just me. I can easily see how it could backfire on someone else. If people are failing and blame P.E. for it, then.... they're not using their time outside of that class wisely.

well before I moved to home school
I think schools should offer other athletic classes along with p.e, like yoga and dance. I think it should be mandatory for students to take an athletic class....because to be honest, a lot of us need it these days. It would be nice to have options though heart

I don't think so because some students, including myself, aren't very comfortable in gym. But since it's mandatory I agree that there should be various options for athletic classes, yoga would be quite nice, dance, sports, ect.

It should be mandatory, up to a certain point. Where I'm from, you need one credit of P.E. Half that credit comes from the 9th grade PE class (taken either semester), and another class where you choose either exerobics, wellness walking, weight training, weight toning, or PE for 10-12th grade.

If it's done well, I think it's actually beneficial. My old school had it mandatory in the later parts of high school and held these 'games' with two competing teams involving everyone.
Everyone felt that it was a way to release the exam tensions and foster some great memories with their peers.
