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.
