The Minority Agenda in Physical Education: Perspectives and Suggestions.
Ocansey, Reginald T-A.
This paper examines the literature on the involvement of ethnic minorities in physical education. These minorities include Hispanics, American Indians, Asian Americans, and African Americans. In physical education, as in other disciplines, currently the number of minority professionals in teaching is declining. Through a review of literature on minorities, the paper addresses relevant topics that may enhance understanding of minority issues in physical education. The major topics addressed are: (1) the factors affecting the participation of minorities in teaching, (2) the nature of minority teacher representation in teaching, and (3) ways for increasing the number of ethnic minorities in physical education. Also under consideration are complex factors that have an impact on participation of minorities in the teaching force: the number of years of schooling which affects the rate of entering minorities into teacher education; access to educational opportunities which enhance growth and employment; and the loss of minorities as role models in the teaching profession.
