Ethnicity and the physical education curriculum: towards an anti-racist approach

Education, sport and leisure: connections and controversies: 109-123
Ethnicity and the physical education curriculum: towards an anti-racist approach
The paper argues that the minority groups in the UK have not been well served by physical education (PE), and that it is time for physical educators to adopt an explicitly anti-racist approach to their work in order to offer real equality of opportunity to all pupils. The discourse that has surrounded the issues facing PE in the UK during the last 30 years has, in the main, been concerned with the ideology of assimilation and the practices of monoculturalism.
