Why the British government should get rid of physical education: A post from Reddit
The British government is considering a policy that would remove physical education from the curriculum.
According to a report from the Guardian, the move is being considered because of a growing backlash against the compulsory education of children.
The UK government recently launched a new compulsory physical education curriculum that was introduced in the 2020s, with some parents being opposed to the idea of teaching physical education as a secondary school subject.
Many parents have been arguing against the curriculum as it has not been scientifically proven to reduce child bullying.
As a result, parents have voiced concerns about the safety of the children involved.
Parents have also voiced concerns over the fact that the new curriculum will introduce physical education into a primary school.
In a statement, the Department of Education said the new Physical Education Act is about strengthening and expanding the country’s strengths in physical education and the skills and knowledge we have to enable our young people to fulfil their potential.
“We want our children to be safe and healthy and we want them to have access to the best in education and skills,” the statement read.
“The government is committed to improving and delivering on the strong foundation we have built for our children and to ensuring all children can achieve the best outcomes for themselves and their families.”
