Thackeray, Rosemary; Neiger, Brad L.; Bartle, Heidi; Hill, Susan C.; Barnes, Michael D.
American Journal of Health Education, v33 n2 p77-82 Mar-Apr 2002
Investigated elementary school teachers' perspectives on barriers and enablers to teaching health in the classroom. Data from teacher interviews and focus groups revealed several barriers and few enablers, with three general thematic areas: existing policies or guidelines for instruction, limited instruction time, and teacher preferences. Overall, teachers needed an environment that encouraged school health education. (SM)
