Current Conditions and Perspectives in Physical Education and Sport in the United States of America. A Report to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization by the United States Office of Education.
McNeely, Simon A.; And Others
This document is the United States Office of Education response to a questionnaire prepared by UNESCO soliciting information on the conditions of physical education and sports in the United States for presentation in a conference working paper for the First International Conference for Ministers and Senior Officials Responsible for Physical Education and Sport in the Education of Youth (April 5-10, 1976). The questionnaire is divided into two sections: (1) "Current Conditions in Physical Education and Sport," concerned with programs offered at the present time; and (2) "Alternatives and Perspectives for Physical Education and Sports, 1976-1980," describing alternatives recently adopted or under consideration. Section one examines current conditions in the United States under the headings of "Physical Education,""Sports in the Schools," and "Sports Out-of-School," detailing the aims and objectives, structure, curriculum, methods, personnel, professional preparation, facilities, research, and evaluation current for each of the headings. Section two of the questionnaire response analyzes alternative policies, legislation, and practice adopted recently or considered for adoption in the near future for national programs and programs for international cooperation. Seventeen appendixes are attached and include the UNESCO questionnaire, statements, and guidelines for physical education philosophy, state regulation summaries, programs of physical education for the handicapped, national norm reports, informal statements on various state programs, and a file classification list of backup materials for the report.
