Since 2008, KCPT has been exploring the national obesity epidemic through Generation XL, showing viewers the challenges children face when it comes to living a healthy life. In this new episode, KCPT delves further into physical education in schools. How does modern day P.E. begin to address the goal of instilling lifelong physical fitness into the psyche of kids? Join host Nick Haines in the studio with Dr. Leon Greene from the University of Kansas, and Ashley Davies and Jennifer Straub from PE4life, as they discuss breaking the cycle of childhood obesity through physical education.
Through the sponsorship of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City, KCPT has been tackling the growing problem of childhood obesity and sedentary lifestyles with educators, health experts, fitness gurus and policy makers. With a new school year comes a new season of our series Generation XL, as we look at how schools across the metro are addressing the issues of physical activity among their students. From before- and after-school activities, to recess, to movement in the classroom, some of the metro’s schools are coming up with creative ways to squeeze in that much-needed physical activity boost.
