Elementary schools in California are required to provide 200 minutes of physical education to students for every 10 days of school. But lawyer and parent Donald Driscoll sued 37 school districts, including San Francisco and Los Angeles Unified, claiming the schools aren't providing the mandated physical education hours. A settlement has been reached, but questions remain over how well schools fulfill the requirement.
