According to what was presented at the September 2012 Board of Education meeting, Hamburg is looking into making up the considerable shortage in physical education instruction by using videos to teach kids.
So in an era of serious illness related to obese and sedentary lifestyles, the Hamburg Board of Education eliminated "FTEs" (a.k.a teachers and staff) in Physical Education, and ignored the NYS mandates on physical education.
The Hamburg Community was told by Athletic Director Mr. Witman, that the district will utilize videos to make up for the lost instruction by certified professionals.
Concerned is concerned.
Perhaps, the President of the Board of Education Dr. Joan Calkins and Superintendent Achramovitch are suggesting the use of their own work out routine as valid instruction for kids.
Perhaps, Joan and Steve's video is being used to supplant the professional training of teachers.
Where is the Hamburg Teachers' union?
Have they never heard of exclusivity?
All Physical Education professionals in Hamburg schools should be outraged that their jobs are being displaced by nothing more than cheesy Joan Fonda workout videos.
Kids need physical education, not videos!!!
