Survey of Students' Attitudes towards Physical and Health Education in London Secondary Schools, June 1983. Research Report 83-08.
Earl, L. M.; Stennett, R. G.
Questionnaires were submitted to students in all but two of the secondary schools in London (Ontario) to discover why students who are either taking or not taking physical and health education (P.H.E.) courses made these decisions and their opinions on P.H.E. Students answered some personal questions and some questions about their prior experience in P.H.E. classes. On separate questionnaires, students taking P.H.E. rated the importance of various reasons in their decision to take the course, while students not taking P.H.E. rated the importance of various reasons in their decision. Students taking P.H.E. also rated the current emphasis on various program aspects, and both groups of students indicated how much emphasis should be placed on these aspects. Students taking P.H.E. answered a series of questions about both the current and their preferred emphasis in evaluation. Finally, each group of students answered a separate set of general questions about their reaction to some possible additions or changes to the P.H.E. program. The questionnaires are included in this report and the results of the survey are presented in tabular form. Major findings and trends are described in the text of the report. (JD)
