Problems in physical education:
P.E.Teacher (Physical education teacher) has to do so many duties such as training of skills in various activities, mass drill, organizing different programs for physical education and planning.
Many problems are involved in these duties.
1 Problems in selection of students:
Students are different in age groups and they have different interest and abilities.
As a P.E.Teacher (physical education teacher) has to select suitable student for different physical activities.
To make a selection of a student P.E.Teacher Should be considered the whole School not a single classroom.
In a classroom the class teacher is the responsible for the discipline
The responsibility will be changed according to the period of time
But the P.E.Teacher ( physical education teacher) holds the responsibility of keeping discipline in the whole School.
His responsibility of discipline not Limited within the school he is to look after the discipline outside too . For example: In tournaments, in playgrounds and in different programs.
Different equipments are required to practice different physical activities
Provision and maintenance of equipment depends on School’s financial conditions and availability of place
Some schools do not give importance to the physical education. So they cannot provide equipment
Some schools do not have sufficient place to maintain equipment
So physical education teacher has to face them patiently.
Some schools don’t have their own playgrounds
In some schools where there is a playground the P.E.Teacher has to face the problem of the proper maintenance.
5. Lack of Literature:
Physical education is ever changing and ever growing subject
A P.E.Teacher is required to improve his knowledge in the changes of physical education
Schools do not take interest in purchasing new and standard books on physical education
6. Work load:
Generally schools will be appointed only 1 P.E.Teacher
Number of students is not taken into consideration so a P.E.Teacher has to do many duties. It is increasing workload of P.E.Teacher.
7 Evolution of P.E.Teacher work:
Schools are evaluating the work of P.E.Teacher on the basis of achievement of students in tournaments.
This is wrong concept of evolution
It will spoil the purpose of physical education, evolution should be done on the basis of hard work put by the P.E.Teacher.
