A call for Guam to extend school day and add physical education classes

An editorial in  Guampdn.com calls for a longer school day to make time for physical education classes.

“Overweight children are at risk for diabetes and a number of other health problems, which only gets worse as unhealthy children become unhealthy adults,” the editorial stated. “One of the primary reasons for this troubling trend is that fewer of our kids are getting regular exercise, and a large part of this problem is the erosion of physical education programs in our public schools.”
