Ferry, Magnus; Lund, Stefan – Sport, Education and Society, 2018

Schenker, Katarina – Sport, Education and Society, 2018
Teachers in the school subject Health and Physical Education (HPE) need to be able both to teach health and to do so in a healthy (equitable) way. The health field has, however, met with difficulties in finding its form within the subject.

Cushion, Christopher J. – Sport, Education and Society, 2018

It has become a "taken-for-granted" part of coaching that is accepted enthusiastically and unquestioningly, and is assumed to be "good" for coaching and coaches. Drawing on sociological concepts, a primarily Foucauldian…

Public schools in the US are increasingly charging "pay-to-play" fees for participating in sports. Although these fees can cause reductions in participation, particularly for children from lower-income families, pay-to-play has become a legitimate practice within the field of public education. This study examines what leads some school…

To date, we know little about the contribution of physical education (PE) curriculum policy to the overall policy landscape. This paper examines the construction of race and racism in two national contexts (Norway and…

Lewis, Colin J.; Roberts, Simon J.; Andrews, Hazel – Sport, Education and Society, 2018
