Physical Education Mandates: A Preliminary Report.
Illinois State Board of Education, Springfield.
This report provides analysis and preliminary recommendations on a mandate that requires and contributes to the development of physical education components in Illinois public schools. The report is presented in sections dealing with: (1) five areas of analysis and sources of information; (2) legal requirements and statutory authority for providing physical education; (3) legislative history of the physical education mandate; (4) status of the current physical education program; (5) an analysis of five areas of study; and (6) preliminary recommendations, conclusions, and summary of the development of a state physical education program. Discussion of the five areas of analysis centers on the narrow interpretation of the mandate in school districts and on the need to redefine the mandate to include more realistic requirements. The summary and conclusions state the reasons that the current mandate is not viable and reasons that physical education programs are needed in Illinois. (FG)
