Chicago students spend 35 hours a week at school. For some, only one of those hours, on one day a week, is dedicated to unshackling themselves from their desks and getting some physical activity. Getting more time for P.E. is a challenge for P.E. teachers across the city -- it's such a clear challenge that one nonprofit, Girls in the Game, exists to provide outside-of-school options for kids willing to seek out and schedule time for being active. This is all happening in Michelle Obama's hometown, where she stopped by last week to announce an expansion of her national Let's Move program.
