headed by hypocrites

call it senioritus or whatever you will, but i am fed the heck up with the sioux falls school board and public education in general.

for the previous few weeks, the big debate in sioux falls has been whether or not to cut the current health/PE requirements by 2/3rds. it used to be that students had to have a full year of PE, and (by recently addition) a half semester of health. now, students get to choose whether or not they take a half credit of health or a half credit of PE. it’s nothing short of bipolarity to add a health class requirement and then take it away two years later. but, even better, three years ago, they took away junk food sold in schools to “better the lifestyles of students” or whatever.

soooo let me get this straight. students should be more fit than they are right now. lets take away junk food (or “real” food, as we know it at school) in an effort to battle childhood obesity.

i’m ok with that. logical move. i miss my fries…

back to the school board train of thought: good, junk foods gone. nooow, lets take away a FULL CREDIT of physical education. that makes since… dont eat nacho cheese, but you can take 5 foods credits and skip the PE credits all together. 

heres whats going to happen. i’m a big guy. lets say i’m only a sophmore….(thank god its not true…) weelll, PE is slightly humiliating to a man of my… girth. i think i’ll sit in a classroom and slack off and learn about health rather than live it out.

dear sioux falls school board: YOUR DECISION FIXES NOTHING. YOU JUST ADDED TO THE PROBLEM YOU’RE TRYING TO FIX.

 i dont even have the energy to rant on public education in general… more to come on that later.
