Tougher Physical Education Standards in Florida

In Education, Health, Writing (all kinds) on July 1, 2016 at 3:00 AM

Florida students will now be required to do 30 minutes of daily exercise according to a bill signed by Gov. Charlie Crist.

Beginning in fall 2009 middle schools will offer daily physical education to sixth to eighth grade classes.

Known as the “Don Davis Physical Education Act” is named after a Jacksonville representative who died from brain cancer.
A similar bill was passed last year, however was not enforced.

This bill was created to toughen up the original bill and to make sure that students receive the exercise they need.
