Physical Education


This study concerns a physical education program for the O. L. Price school of Taylor, Texas. The superintendent of the Taylor public schools, and the principal and members of the teaching staff of the O. L. Price school including the writer, who serves as coach, have long recognized the need of a physical education program.

Because of the lack of a physical education program students are being deprived of the kind of physical education which is now deemed necessary for the proper growth and development of public school children. The general purpose of this study, therefore is to provide data and information which is hoped may incite interest in physical education and result in an adequate physical education for the O. L. Price school.

More specifically, the purpose of this thesis can be stated as follows: 1. To review general literature on physical education for the purpose of determining the most commonly accepted objectives and methods of the physical education program in modern schools. 2. To consult the literature with the view of determining definite polices and standards, commonly by recognized authorities as being desirable or necessary for the proper functioning of each of the following five areas of the physical education programs a. Administration b. Program c. Personnel d. Facilities and equipment e. Budget and finance 3. To show the present situation at the O. L. Price school.
