by Wade, Charles R., Ed.D., Trevecca Nazarene University, 2016, 337; 10140140
Abstract (Summary)

This study addressed the marginalization of elementary physical education and professional practice. This project applied proven surveys, scales, and qualitative processes; observations, interviews, and focus groups to measure and understand how physical educators can counter the impressions of stakeholders regarding the subject as inconsequential. Also, the research explained and recognized some cultural procedures in elementary physical education that promoted and inhibited proper student outcomes. The main settings for this study took place in two rural schools in small school systems. In addition, information was obtained through social media venues. The findings along with the literature review established the subject is marginalized; however, PE teachers can influence and combat the issues.
