PE is a good idea to instill the value of exercise and activity. However, by the time one is in highschool, it may too late.
What ticked my off was having to take 2 credits of PE at the university. What a joke and waste of time and needless expense. As tuition is now
something like $500/credit hour at state schools, $500 to be forced to play 14 hours of volleyball and or basketball is pretty stupid IMHO.
Potential good courses on personal fitness, weight training, sports conditioning, sports officiating, team building, endurance, or even team building
ropes courses etc would have provided some value. However such courses would typically require actual work on the part of students and professor
rather than goof off play.
