Explores the lives and careers of physical education teachers from
two perspectives. Firstly, teachers' life-stories illustrate how
eight teachers became involved with sport, how they entered the
physical education profession, why they developed particular
teaching philosophies, and how they have tried to progress in their
teaching careers. Secondly, a broader thematic analysis identifies
issues which arise throughout the teachers' stories and locates
them within the wider international research literature. Low status
is identified as an enduring concern, and it is argued that this
stems from a lack of empirical research into the educational
outcomes which are claimed for physical education.
