So what the heck happens if a kid is PHYSICALLY UNABLE to complete a task? Pat's push-ups are awful, but he tries. If these standards had been in effect when I was in high school, I'd have failed PE. On pushups, situps, and flexibility the poor kid is getting from 10% to 50%. Flexibility? OK, Rose would get 150% easy but this is a 15-y/o boy! Any teachers that can explain how the state can tell me how fit my kid has to be to excel? Jeez, I can't run a mile and have never been able to, so his getting a 25% on running a mile is no worry to me. What's next, I have to make him run around the block as homework?! Yes, he needs more physical activity, but I thought grades like this were based on effort, not ability. I'd hate to see what kind of grade they give someone who is physically disabled.
