CA Physical Education Framework APPROVED by State Board of Education

California's first ever Standards-Based Physical Education Framework was approved today. The Framework places an emphasis on physical activity to combat the childhood obesity epidemic. State Superintendent Jack O'Connell said, "this will in turn help students academically and impact the achievement gap."

The Framework is based on the premise that every student's life can be enhanced through participation in a comprehensive, inclusive, and sequential physical education program.
