1/3 of CA students can't pass all 6 areas of Fitnessgram!

10-23-13: This report just came out in the local newspaper this AM. While there have been improvements, 1/3 of 5th, 7th, and 9th graders did NOT pass all 6 areas of the Fitnessgram in CA. Different school district administrators are doing what they can, so kudos to them. You can read the full story here:

What do you think can and should be done to improve this? The future of our state and country depends on us figuring out how to change this trend. Research shows that fitness is linked to academics in a positive way. The more fit you are, the better your grades are!
