"Actually, instead of Bush urging people to be more healthy, why not make it mandatory in school to do a couple of hours hard physical workout a day?"
1st off the parents should be the ones that have to manage their weight. Of all the subjects that have a mandatory minutes per week, Physical Education is the ONLY one. I believe it works out to 45 minutes each day. Math and Language Arts are not given the same consideration, so a teacher could just teach math only 30 minutes a week.
Plus, some parents constantly try to have thier children opt out of PE. When I worked as a supervision aide, we got the written notes---Please escuse my child because he/she is allergic to the grass or more common I don't want my child having any P.E. because he has asthema(sp).
