Taking the Rhetoric Seriously: Proposals for Olympic Education.
Quest, v48 n1 p82-92 Feb 1996
Despite claims that participation in Olympic sports is broadly educational and developmental, considerable empirical evaluation suggests otherwise. Most of what is called Olympic education addresses other concerns. This paper argues for a formal, outcomes-based pedagogy of the Olympic sports and Olympic Games, offering proposals on how to realize it. (SM)
