The teacher-as-researcher and the future survival of physical education

Abstract

Many have suggested that the industrial model of schooling (i.e. one that concentrates on the year-on-year production of ‘educated’ students) is no longer suitable for a post-industrial education system. With this in mind, and in considering the three possible futures described by Kirk (2010) in his book Physical Education Futures, this paper suggests that teachers hold the key to the future survival of physical ducation. The industrial model of physical education has led to the evolution of an approach to teaching that foregrounds the development of sport-techniques (most especially in team games) at the expensive of understanding and intelligent performance. One possible future (and the one that looks most likely at this time) is what Kirk called ‘more of the same.’ With this response physical education will continue to foreground games and their techniques and ignore the growing dissatisfaction around this approach.
