IEA launches PE commercial, campaign

In an effort to help spread the word about the importance of keeping Illinois students active, IEA has launched the Keep Learning, Keep Moving campaign.

The Illinois legislature passed a law over the summer that allows school boards to reduce physical education classes from five days a week down to three, among other PE changes, but we know that healthy bodies help produce healthy minds.

The Keep Learning, Keep Moving campaign includes a television commercial, featuring IEA member Hilary Lee, a PE teacher from Glencoe, that aired over most of the state during the IHSA football finals and will air during other IHSA events.

The Keep Learning, Keep Moving webpage features a number of ways parents, community members, IEA members and others can learn about the benefits of daily PE, share the word and take action.
