Gym should have more varieties of sports because gym is too focused on boys. For example, Jenna said that whenever the boys are captains, they pick the most aggressive boys for their teams, and the girls do nothing. We also never get passed the ball. One reason that gym is too focused on boys is that whenever the boys ask to do something, the answer is yes, but whenever the girls ask to do something, the answer is no. For example, Daniel said that in gym he wants to do other things, but the boys would never agree with him. This makes me realize everyone thinks that the majority of the class is boys, but it’s not. This is important because gym isn’t as much physical education for girls as it is for the boys, because girls usually just stand, and talk. We’ve even tried to fix this. Gym should have more varieties of sports because gym is too focused on boys.
Gym should have more varieties of sports because change is good. Haven’t you always wanted to try something new? For example, I found online that making kids play team sports, is neither healthy, nor educational. Because it’s like if you’re not good at sports you’re not cool. I’m not saying that we shouldn’t play any team sports, but maybe less intimidating sports like volleyball. That would be a good change. If we changed our sports, we wouldn’t have to do the same thing over and over again. For example, Chelsea said that we did the same sports over and over again, and weren’t allowed to do anything else. Also, my sister Sarah said that even when she was there, which was four years ago, gym was still the same sports. We only did gymnastics two or three times this whole six years I’ve been here, and it’s because a small group of girls asked, no one else participated. We also only did volleyball about 4 times. Gym should have more varieties of sports because it gets boring, it’s too focused on boys, and change is good. All the girls and some of the boys don’t like gym.
