Book Description

In Britain the physical education curriculum has been experiencing a period of unrest. For many teachers the practices of decades have become problematic features of their curriculum and teaching. This book, first published in 1986, explores the experiences of teachers and pupils in programmes of physical education from a sociological perspective. In explores a range of issues relating to the organisation and management of physical education departments, deviancy and dissent in sport, gender inequalities and the concepts of community education and leisure education. This title will be of interest to students of sociology and education.
