Top Ten Classes That Could Replace Physical Education As a Required School Class

Being active is important, but schools take it too far by extending budgets for athletic departments, and trying to get everyone to do sports. So, these classes could very well replace physical "education".

I don't even have to take PE every semester (1/2 credit required), but I'm speaking very clear that it's very forced in many places.

PositronWildhawk, enjoy, along with anyone else passing by this list!
The Top Ten
1 Music

Well...PE leads to all round development...whether it's stronger bones or self discipline or reduced risk of heart diseases or cancer (It's many pharmaceutical companies conceal this...: exercise doesn't let the oncogenes to get activated at all)
They're for your benefit...for your body and future

...One can learn music and these other classes on the list later on in life, but your body has its own time limit for everything.

Would you be able to compensate for the loss you did to your body in growing phase when you should've nurtured it? Would you be able to grow when the train would be long gone?

2 Art

The stroke of a paintbrush onto a canvas takes loads of detail, and creativity. By stretching the mind through art, we could have more inventions. And while physical education may push people to "limits", art does that, but on a whole different set of boundaries (attention to detail).

Far better in my opinion! Why, we don't even offer art year-round at my school! Infuriating...

3 Theorization

This is a class I would like to take. The whole idea is to take any everyday concept, and come up with some sort of alternate route, or an alternate theory. It will expand creativity, and ease the mind of "step by step" learning.

There is such a thing as critical thinking, which challenges your thinkability and builds on your reasoning, something indeed critical for further education.

You could become the next Einstein with this class.

4 Media

With the rise of technology, we could be learning about computers, and how they work. It could fascinate is for hours if we don't waste the Internet on selfies and crap.

I would take this since I want to get involved more with Media.

5 Social Skills

No, phys ed should replace this instead. Gym is more fun. Special ed social skills class is too boring and easy.

Social skills as a class would be great for me, shame I don't have it. It's one of the things I REALLY HAVE TO WORK ON, but it's left up to my parents. Good thing my parents are pretty aware of it...

6 Invention

Creative minds will make creative ideas. But unfortunately, with the "instruction book" learning today, it traps the mind's creativity in a corner. But, with invention class, it would help people come up with fresh ideas, and make them real. They would also get to make the invention.

7 Lyric's Meanings

The class would dissect lyrics of a song, and would help people realize, before they start singing "yeah, touch me like that", or something of that nature, they think of what it means first.

Some schools did this with The Beatles' music back in the '60s. Lennon was amused that people were trying to read into his lyrics, so he wrote "I Am the Walrus" to baffle them.

I could do this easily. I listen to Dream Theater, so I know how to decode lyrics.

8 World Culture

The class would center around the cultures around the world, so we can learn about other societies besides ours. The final portion of the class would be a visit to another country. I know this one could be expensive, but it could be like an American going to Canada, or a Brit going to Ireland, or another part of the UK even.

Nice list Turkey! Although this is my favorite because we need to learn outside of the bubble that is our country

9 Home Economics

No, this wouldn't be sewing or knitting, but it would be on how to do things, such as replacing a flat tire, cooking, and doing laundry, as well as other everyday life skills.

10 Sex Education
The Contenders
11 Game Development
12 Culinary Arts

This should be a supplement to gym/health instead of a replacement. You learn how to cook healthy food and exercise so you can stay fit.

I'd like this, but I suck at cooking...

13 Shipping (Pairing) Class

The only thing I can imagine that will happen here is Shadouge vs. Knuxouge. Nothing good would come out of the situation...

I guess my sister would be into it...

14 Self Defense
15 Common Sense Class

This is a rather simple course that should be common, but isn't. It includes instruction in basic decision making, idea connecting, rational thinking (formal and informal logic) economics, design, marketing, politics, statistics, and psychology. It would be a class necessary given the state of stupidity of many people, being fooled by businesses, and not thinking twice before planking on top of the empire state building. It will help people see why something will be a problem and shouldn't be done, and being an informed citizen of said country. It will allow people to make decisions on the trustworthiness of said website so not to be scammed. More helpful than memorizing the French revolution, am I right?

16 My Little Pony Class

My Little Pony! Now sing that with a tune

Not for a million dollars. Well, maybe.

I would skip this class everyday!

17 Meme Class
18 Total Drama Class

I would totally take this class.

19 World Language
20 Band
21 Figure skating Figure skating is a sport in which individuals, duos, or groups perform on figure skates on ice. It was the first winter sport included in the Olympics, in 1908. The four Olympic disciplines are men's singles, ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dance.

I wish! If figure skating was a class all my dreams would come true...and I'd actually pay attention...

That would be so amazing and probably the only class I would pay attention in!

22 Chorus
23 Sex: The Experience
24 Comedy
25 Financial Stuff

Teach kinds how to take out loans when older and buy a house, how to be smart with money and stuff. It is much better than learning how tf to run.
