BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - A parents group wants to make sure kids are getting the right amount of physical education in schools.
Sam Radford and the District Parent Coordinating Council have now filed a legal appeal with the State Education Department. The parents say there's a high rate of childhood obesity in Buffalo, and schools are not giving children the required amount of physical education by law.
Radford said, "We're just going to continue to persist as parents because we believe this district can give our kids the best education possible in this country. We believe that and we're going to continue to fight to make that happen."
The school district responded with this statement:
"We are taking the complaint very seriously. Our school board has a new Health and Wellness policy that emphasizes the importance of good nutrition and regular physical activity, so we have increased student access to both this school year. We are continuing to review this matter to ensure our District's compliance with Physical Education regulations and policies."
