Charles Beck became the first P.E teacher in America.
Until this time P.E was not a mandatory part of any schools curriculum until Boston became the first city to require and mandated that P.E become a daily part of the curriculm for all the schools within the city limits.
Up until this no state had mandated that there be a Physical education program in the school curriculum. Individual cities had passed ordinances mandating P.E, but no state as a whole had passed a law that required it state wide. In 1866, California became the first state to require all schools in the state to have P.E be apart of the curriculum with the goal of keeping kids active.
Law that assured kids with disabilities would recieve physical education.
Spark, a program aimed to educate kids in school at an early age to set a pattern that they will carry into adulthood and will forever maintain a healthy life, was created. The program sets a basis and curriculum based on age and other factors. Today, Spark is known as one of the best and most successful curriculum programs in schools.
