About the Physical Education as a Requirement in General Education Report
The paper was prepared by the chairs of the Physical Education for Women and Men in response to the Educational Policy Committee's specific recommendation suggesting elimination of the basic physical education requirement.
The chairs of the Department of Physical Education for Men and Department for Physical Education for Women protested eliminating physical education as a college requirement, arguing that due to the well known poor decision making skills of young people (such as college students) the best way to insure they recieved sufficent physical activity was to make it mandatory. They both submitted proposals for athletic programs, with the Men's program focusing more on sports while the Women's on exercise programs that promoted ease of movement and grace, specifically dance.
