The A-Z of Social Justice Physical Education: Part 2


Education reproduces broader social structures and teachers’ responsibilities are constantly increasing, but budgets, resources, and staff decreases. It is a time of uncertainty and challenge in education.

Due to this precarity, physical educationalists must be socially conscious to provide equal and equitable environments within their teaching spaces for all students.

This paper (the second instalment of a two-part series) is an attempt to make an important step in social justice education, it highlights how teachers and teacher educators can prepare for, and hopefully teach about, precarity in relation to social justice physical education.

By providing resources, readings, and examples from practice we have attempted to provide the discipline a framework for cultivating an ethic of value, care, and zeal for others so that all members of our society can partake in the social rights they deserve and be physically active for life.
