Daily Physical Education/Fitness. Survey.
Manitoba Dept. of Education, Winnipeg.
Physical education staff (principals and division superintendents) in the Manitoba, Canada department of education responded to a survey pertaining to time allotments of physical education programs. Survey results indicated that all levels of administration supported the implementation of daily physical education programs. There is general adherence to current departmental guidelines in respect to time allotments. Administrators revealed that numerous environments were used for physical education programs and that more space could be found to accommodate increased amounts of time in the programs. The majority of schools required inservice training for implementation of a daily physical education program. Many felt that such a program could be adapted within two years, but that additional resources would be needed. The twelve survey questions are included as well as the most common responses, and, in several instances, the percentage of various replies. Survey results will be used in the determination of the recommendations for time allotments and implementation of a revised physical education program. (CJ)
