In light of the problem stated previously concerning high rates of deliquency and truancy, the purpose of this thesis is to construct a physical education program for boys in Dunbar High School of Fort Worth, Texas. Dunbar has been a Junior High School until the last two years, at which time a grade each year was added. This year the twelveth grade is being added. For this reason it is necessary to construct a program to include the required physical education courses for the High School Department.

This study will include a proposed program of required physical education for Dunbar High School, Fort Worth, Texas. It is a school with about two hundred students on the high school level. The study contains such recommendations as will establish a workable program Physical Education for this school. The program is intended to apply only to the above named school, although implications may be applicable to high schools of similar size under similar conditions.

The materials to be used in this study will be gathered from textbooks in the field of physical education and other authoritative writings, including periodicals and reports found in the National Education Association Proceedings.
