San Francisco Chronicle Publishes ASI Letter-to-Editor Calling for Physical Activity-Based Learning to Be Part of California Governor’s Agenda

In its ongoing effort to establish physical activity as the essential element of learning for schoolchildren everywhere, the American Sports Institute submitted and the San Francisco Chronicle newspaper published ASI’s letter-to-the-editor calling upon California Governor Gavin Newsom to increase the emphasis on physical activity and to consider physical activity-based learning for all the state’s schoolchildren. The letter begins by praising the Governor for promoting early-childhood education in his agenda.



Entitled “Governor’s Education Focus” and written by ASI president Joel Kirsch, the letter also presents the perspective that “physical activity just may be the foundation, the very heart of education in effect and the essential missing link in the stumbling educational-reform movement.”
