1 Hey Coach,

My P.E. teacher is mean. She judges our skill not our effort - like if we're bad at a sport that we're doing a certain week, she'll give us a B or C for the week. Is this fair?

Hey tojo311,

Like most teachers in North America, your P.E. teacher is grading you based on your results, not on your effort. That's no different from any of your other classes at school, and it's not much different from how the real world works. The grade you get on a math test is always based on how many right answers you get, not on how hard you studied for the test, or how hard you tried to calculate the right answers. Your P.E. teacher isn't being mean. She's grading you partly on how skilled you are at a certain sport, not just on how much effort you put into playing the sport. That means kids who try hard sometimes still end up with Cs and Ds, while other kids who don't seem to try at all get As (That's similar to Allen Iverson skipping practice or showing up late for a game. He still gets to start because he has unbelievable skills, even though he may not be the hardest working player on the 76ers). This may seem unfair when you're putting a lot of effort in but the school system, much like real life, bases its grading system on results, not effort.

The most important things you should be getting out of your P.E. class are an appreciation for sport, a healthy and active body and mind and good exercise habits that will stay with you for the rest of your life. Don't worry about whether you're getting an A, B or C, because in the long run, grades don't really matter and there's no such thing as a "permanent record".

Do you have a question on sports, P.E. class, fitness or health? to the Kidzworld Coach. Keep in mind peeps, the Kidzworld Coach isn't a doctor or a professional athlete or anything like that. He's just a dude who digs sports, plays 'em and knows a lot about 'em. You should always talk to your 'rents, a doctor or your school gym teacher before starting a new sport or a new exercise.

Should P.E Be Graded?

  • Yes - it's like any class and should be graded.
  • No way - P.E. is about getting exercise, not grades.
  • I'm not sure.
  • I don't take P.E.

No, it's not really a sport, to be honest. It's an activity which is quite sexist in my eyes.
