Health and physical education provides a blueprint for how students can live an active, healthy, and balanced life. Likewise, it affords students the opportunity to acquire and hone essential 21st century skills such as critical thinking and problem solving, communication and collaboration, and health literacy in addition to enabling students to become self-directed learners and responsible, productive citizens. These are life-long skills that will benefit the future of all students and empower each one to live a healthy and balanced life.
