What’s going on in physical education?
Physical education (PE) is the science and technology that helps us exercise and perform better.
But it’s not always easy to get it.
In the US, the average PE teacher spends $10,000 to $15,000 annually, and teachers who are women and minorities are less likely to receive the most training than their white counterparts.
The federal government has been trying to change that by offering funding to schools, but it hasn’t been enough to help the physical education industry grow.
It’s also unclear what the next step for PE is, but a new report from the National Geographic Education Foundation (NGEF) indicates that the US could see a dramatic improvement in the next few years.
While the physical fitness industry is in dire need of funding, it could also have the potential to dramatically increase the number of PE teachers.
That’s because the physical activity industry is one of the most important sectors of the US economy.
Nearly 30% of US adults have a job requiring physical education training, and this industry is estimated to be worth $2.2 trillion in 2017, according to a report by the US Department of Education.
PE teachers earn a median of $56,000 per year, and the majority of these pay $11,000 or less.
According to the report, in 2019, the physical exercise industry in the US grew by nearly 6% and accounted for $1.3 trillion in annual revenue.
But while that growth has been dramatic, PE teachers aren’t the only ones to benefit from PE training.
In addition to PE, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is also investing in physical activity research and technology to help teachers increase their students’ physical fitness.
NIH has also funded numerous academic studies, including the National Institute of Health Physical Activity in Education Research Center, which aims to “develop and validate curricula, interventions, and practices that help improve physical fitness, physical education curricula and programs, and physical education teachers’ knowledge, skills, and abilities in order to meet the health, economic, and community development needs of individuals and communities.”
That study found that the physical movement and sports industry is a big player in the growth of PE education.
In 2018, the NIH was awarded $9.3 million in grants to study the effectiveness of PE as a primary activity.
While that study focused on the physical performance of students and adults, the study’s authors also noted that it could help teachers develop curriculum that helps students gain the skills needed for the physical work.
And that could be the start of a new era for PE in the United States.
In order to grow the PE industry, we need to take a holistic approach to it.
The physical activity training industry has the potential for huge growth, and if it’s expanded and funded, it will have the power to help more people get the physical activities they need to be healthy.
So, what are the biggest challenges for PE teachers right now?
First, it’s hard to find qualified teachers in most areas of the country.
In many cities, schools don’t have a PE teacher available to teach physical education and are struggling to find and hire teachers.
Second, it can be difficult to find the right teachers, because many schools don, too.
According the National Education Association (NEA), there are nearly 600,000 teachers who don’t teach physical science, physical therapy, or physical education in the country, and nearly 50,000 of them are either under-resourced or out of work.
In cities with more than a million students, teachers are often required to teach PE to the highest standards of quality and accountability.
That means there is a lot of competition for the most qualified teachers.
Third, teachers need to have a variety of physical fitness training to be successful.
In a recent study, the US Office of Education and the National Association of State Education Directors (NASED) found that, overall, teachers needed to work on a minimum of 20 hours per week for physical education to be effective.
In other words, most teachers need at least 30 hours per month of physical education instruction to be able to teach in most settings.
That kind of training could potentially help schools attract more teachers, which in turn could increase the numbers of PE students in the classroom.
The NASED also said that a teacher who has not had enough physical education experience can be a barrier to teaching PE.
And if there are no physical education instructors, it also could make it harder for teachers to teach at the school level.
Finally, the lack of support from the education system and lack of funding can make it difficult for PE educators to reach out to students, according the NASED.
The National Association for Secondary Education (NASSE) also found that PE teachers face an “unhealthy work environment” and “a lack of confidence and trust.”
These issues are not unique to PE education, either.
