P.E. first, athletics second at Aspen schools

Gary Vavra’s letter on Jan. 28, “Give us some green for new turf field,” is misguided.

A robust physical education program at the middle school, five days a week for four years as it used to be, needs to be reinstated.

Generally speaking, athletic outcomes are only as good as the P.E. programs. If real estate values are higher because of a turf field, count me out.
