nowadays, a lot of schools started introducing "physical activity time" where students have to do some exercises on the breaks. in my opinion it's a waste of time, cuz students came to school only for learning, but physical activity could be guaranted after lessons, thus, i don't think that it is important to introduce "physical activity time".

There are a few reasons this has been put in place. For starters, physical exercise has been shown to improve ones mood and help one to stay alert. This is vital when one is studying for hours a day.

Many children find it fun and enjoy being able to stretch their legs after sitting down for long periods of time. It's also important for children to exercise as it will improve their physical health.

the school administration made physical education necessarily, but I believe that this is not a big deal. it seems to me that every kid has to choose how to spend his time, and this time spending can even be harmful to him. over some weak children laugh and tease, it can affect the psyche of a growing kid.

If a child were to perform exercise they wouldn't be so weak, it's their lack of exercise that makes others laugh at them.

You haven't disputed the mental health benefits that exercise has on the minds of children, which in turn will allow them to better perform during academic learning.

School should help children develop a healthy mind and body. Neglecting either one will have very harmful outcomes for children.

Yeah, if as a young child, you can't do a 20 minute mile then you're probably going to die early. In that case you should be exposed to even more physical activity to ensure your physical well being.

Humans evolved as long distance runners, we're in the top 5 for fastest long distance runners in the animal kingdom. When you consider how obese and unfit the children of today are, it's worrying to think that they don't have the capabilities they've evolved to perform due to ill health.
Let's not try to discourage exercise let's try to encourage it, unless you want fatties clogging up the NHS services.

Agreed, not everyone has what it takes to finish a 20-minute mile

Phy ed shouldn't be required for everyone. The government has standards for each states schools to teach. The reason we have Phy ed is that we need at least 30 minutes of exercise a day according to the government's studies and requirements. If you are in a sport then you're getting more than enough exercise a day.

We don't need Phy ed
