I would like to see Health listed as a subject

I would like to see Health listed as a subject instead of connected to Science. I do see Physical Education listed. Is there a reason it is not listed as a subject?

      I agree Family and Consumer Sciences (FACS) and Health should be added as subjects. It could be liked to Physical Education (PE)... That is what NY State does with the standards.

        I can see health very naturally listed here, along with other subjects such as computers, economics, physical education, foreign languages, etc. Great teaching should span the subjects and be applicable for all with content filling the cracks and holes.

            I vote for "Health Education" also! Make sure it reads "health education" so it does not get confused with "health services" when you Google it.

              With obesity on the rise? It's a real cause for concern and therefore a subject.

                Being HEALTHY is a major contributor to keeping our students alert and ready for learning!!! So, I totally would love to see a health education section.
