PHYSICAL EDUCATION PLATFORM IN THE PRE-UNIVERSITY EDUCATION SYSTEM IN ALBANIA
In 2014 we created, developed, and implemented a theoretical and practical Platform with contemporary practice for physical education in pre-university education system, from age 3-18. The Parliament approved the Law on Sports, No.79/2017 and physical education radically increased to 3 (three) hours lessons per week.
These induced a significant reduction in obesity among all students from 6 to 18 and brought back the smile and happiness in youth and parents.
