Physical Education: A View Toward the Future.
Welsh, Raymond, Ed.
This document examines the near future of physical education in the last quarter of the twentieth century. Through this effort, an attempt is made to (1) help clarify the current state of the profession, (2) help to restructure images regarding the possibilities of the profession's future, (3) help to stimulate the formation of plans and contingencies that might ensure the profession's continued viability in the years ahead, and (4) help to stimulate discussion and in general sensitize physical educators regarding the postive and negative possibilities of tomorrow. The text can be informally divided into three sections: (1) two essays dealing with the nature of change facing mankind today, the development of futuristics, and the perspective, constructs, and methods used by futurists; (2) a forecast of physical education futures from philosophical, psychosocial, educational, and technoscientific viewpoints, presented in nine essays; and (3) a summary essay on planning for the future of physical education.
