The body fuels the mind.
I think this falls into the parents resposiblity to get their kids out of the house. Parents have to get their kids involved in sports and doing household chores.
The education has already been cut so much. I think it is more important to decrease the size of students per class, get better equipment and updated text books.
Whether I support it would depend on what your proposal would entail. I hated that presidential challenge week in school when you had to do a certain number of situps, pull-ups, laps, etc, and they weighed you and measured your body fat. I support encouraging physical and nutrition education for students, but I don't believe in the "standardized test" aspect, which can be competitive and demoralizing, and I think does not actually encourage overall fitness.
