50 minutes of exercise 5 days a week will make a huge difference. however, gym class != "exercise" all too often. I know it's nearly 20 years ago for me, but I still remember the prima donna's/princesses standing around gosspping/giggleing in gym class.

and the fat/lazy kids sitting on the bleachers pretending to be so winded that they needed a break.

again, in today's society you can't hardly fail a kid, and there's a hue and cry about discrimination, as just about 90% (ok, made up stat for argument's sake) qualify as being disabled in some form.
