Abstract

The years children attend school are most important to the child from the standpoint of social, physical, mental, and emotional development. Play, which is child’s work, is an educational medium that can do much for the total development of the child. Play, through a physical education program, must be properly directed if it is to achieve desirable outcomes. Physical education, when well taught can contribute as much to the goals of general education than any other school subject, not more to each goal than any other subject but more to all goals than any other school subject. The Lake Preston Public high School does not have a physical education program at the present time. As a result, the aim of this paper is to provide a program of required physical education for Lake Preston High School.
