Nathanael Adu and Charles DomfehAbstract:
Since its inception, physical education has played an important role in the development of learners, particularly in early childhood. This paper sought to investigate the factors associated with the non-selection of Physical Education as an elective course in Ashanti Region Colleges of Education: the perspectives of Physical Education tutors. The findings were based on semi-structured interviews with eight tutors and eight public Colleges of Education in Ghana's Ashanti Region. The research revealed the difficulty of the course at the College of Education, the number of Physical Education tutors available, and the workload of Physical Education tutors. The study suggested that Physical Education be introduced early to dispel the myth that it is difficult, and that Colleges of Education hire more Physical Education tutors to ensure an even distribution of workload.Pages: 21-27 | 40 Views 6 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
