Sport, Physical Education and Country Towns: Diverse Enough?
Gard, Michael
Education in Rural Australia, v11 n2 p19-26 2001
By wedding itself to the "ideology of sport" and associated notions of "manliness," physical education in Australia has retained little scope to advocate for cultural diversity. By maintaining that sport is universally popular amongst all children, physical education silences other ways in which children might find pleasure through their own bodies and actively restricts cultural diversity.
