K-12 and University Partnerships: Bridging the Advocacy Gap
Bryan, Charity; Sims, Sandra
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v25 n1 p36-37 Sep-Oct 2011
Research has cited numerous advantages and benefits of K-12 collaborations with the larger university community (Castle, Fox, & Souder, 2006; Crocco, Faithfull, & Schwartz, 2003). Departments of kinesiology across the country are well positioned to establish partnerships with local school systems in order to advocate for quality, daily physical education and increased opportunities for physical activity for children and young adults. Partnering with a university or college will create numerous opportunities to collaborate together for events. The events can be local such as "physical activity day in school" or a PTA presentation. Or the events can be national such as celebrating National Physical Fitness and Sport Month in May or AAHPERD's Let's Move in School. No matter what the event, a dynamic advocacy connection can be created.
