Chicago public schools restoring gym: The Root's take

| No Comments

The Root--a web publication owned by the Washington Post--posted "Why Chicago Schools Brought Back Gym."

How others see us, via The Root: "Since 1997, most of the city's 675 schools have waived the physical education requirement for many of its 405,000 students because of budget shortfalls. But Chicago Public Schools plans to reinstate a physical education requirement for all high school juniors and seniors for the 2013-14 school year, said Frank Shuftan, a district spokesman. Recess will also return for all elementary schools next fall."
