California May Ban Fitness Tests In Gym Class

No more fitness tests in gym class?

Could be a thing in California.

The Governor of California, Gavin Newsom wants schools to stop with the testing in gym class for 3 years because of concerns with bullying, and the test "discriminating against students who are disabled and non-binary."

The non-binary complaint is because of how a student's Body Mass Index is calculated. (BMI number depends on whether you are male or female)

During these 3 years of no testing, the state would study whether the test should be modified or a completely new one should be drawn up.
