To Improve the Health of Australian Children Make Shoes Optional
One of the reasons Australia produces so many great athletes is that many of them grew up barefoot. Freeman, Phelps, and many others. Not only does growing up barefoot give athletes an edge, it also reduces injury rates. So, rather than spending money on olympic medal bonuses, why not take the money saving course of allowing children to go barefoot at school? I'm sure it would have a positive effect on children's activity levels and so improve health and reduce obesity.
