Iowa education plan lacks health component

The latest draft of Iowa's education plan doesn't address physical education coursework.

School funding for physical education began dropping six years ago. The President of the Iowa Association for Health Jody Larson says the Every Student Succeeds Act for Iowa is about priorities, yet physical education isn't listed. Larson said that PE teachers provide information on nutrition and how to live a healthy lifestyle.
