Example text

In this chapter, reference is made to the first set of descriptive data, the publication of which has had, and continues to do so, a remarkable effect on political leaders and those institutions responsible for the developmental growth and education of the young generation in Germany. Without any doubt, present reform initiatives undertaken by the responsible respective administrations can be attributed to the publication of the first results of the SPRINT study. The selected findings reported here refer to the following issues: the conditions under which physical education takes place; pupils’ assessment of physical education; effects of physical education; physical education teachers in the eyes of their pupils; and the social status of physical education teachers.

The content of this chapter draws from the first representative study of physical education and school sport in Germany (DSB, 2006). The aims of the study were to describe and analyze the situation in the context of the current debate on the future of physical education from different perspectives, that is, from pupils’ and teachers’ perspectives as well as those from parents’ and school Principals’1 perspectives. Before presenting the empirical study with its theoretical framework and design and highlighting selected findings, a few preliminary remarks, which deal with the importance and difficulty of conducting a survey on physical education, may help to better understand the background of the study.

There is only one exception and this is for the 55-59 years age group. At least two issues arise here: (i) the gradual decline with age may be interpreted as an indicator that there should be a stronger emphasis on programmes of career-long/continuing professional development (CPD); up to now in Germany, there has been no obligation for a teacher to attend any further training or continuing education once he/she is employed in the school system; and (ii) with regard to the age group 55-59 years, the data may be interpreted as an attempt by these teachers (who will have only a few more years to work before they retire) to initiate some changes in their own professional teaching and perhaps in their behaviour towards the pupils.
