provides laws that I didn't know that protected physical education. great videos within the course to show the effectiveness of A.P.E within the classroom. I learned a lot about Physical Education laws and the necessary steps one needs to go through so that their child is able to be a part of A.P.E. The course taught me new things and also refreshed my mind to what I already knew about Physical Education.
