Higher Education Studies, v2 n1 p88-96 Mar 2012
Physical Education is a vital part of total education. It is that process of education that concerns physical activities, which develop and maintain human body. The attainment of its goals depends on its administrative control structure more than any other thing. Physical Education Curriculum is entrenched in the National Policy on Education and thus, it is taught at all levels of educational development in Nigeria. The administration of Physical education is divided into four parts i.e. 6-3-3-4. However, it has not received the required attention from the government partly because of the economic situation in the country. This has greatly affected its growth and development. It is believed in some quarters that despite the negative attitude of the government that Physical Education can survive and still attain its goals in Nigeria with efficient and effective organizational structure. Therefore, this study is proposing an organizational structure model for achieving developmental goal of Physical Education in Nigeria.
