Killer Jobs: The Dark Side of Being a Physical Education Teacher
Finn, Dale; Ammon, Robin; Mahoney, Kimberly; Fried, Gil; Al Arkoubi, Khadija
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v28 n3 p34-39 2015
The profession of teaching physical education (PE) involves a variety of risks. Most PE teachers or future teachers are aware of the risks associated with their students becoming injured. Sport law classes often discuss negligence, risk management, proper supervision, suitable equipment, appropriate instruction, proper matching of opponents, etc. The focus is primarily or exclusively on student safety. Rarely is the focus on the risks that PE teachers themselves face. This article discusses the largely neglected topics of transportation, workplace violence, and falls, all of which are occupational hazards for PE teachers, potentially associated with serious injuries or death.
