While watching the news the other night, you may have seen one of those “good news” stories—kids getting some exercise at school. But these kids weren’t just jogging or playing dodge ball. They were skateboarding. Uncommonly, skateboarding is being offered in some schools as a physical education class. Back in the day, folks in the urban neighborhoods took the wheels off roller-skates and stuck them on boards and many of them claim credit for inventing the sport which has become a headliner in the X Games, inspired concrete parks and become big business worldwide.
