Write a paper on how poorly phys. ed. is taught in public schools and how it results in many children unable to properly do many skills like throwing and catching, and why thorough conversational language classes from a young age are important for the globalized economy.
I'll admit, I remember very little from my french classes, but going to school in Ottawa with a huge international community it really sheds a light on how ignorant a lot of people are and makes me wish I had another language or two under my belt. And after coaching and teaching nordic skiing, its astonishing how poorly developed some children's motor skills are. Rather than eliminating classes that have a hope of developing such skills in children because right now they seem futile, we should try and encourage better teaching so that the classes aren't a waste.
