Abstract

Whether to require physical education for graduation has always been a topic of discussion among school officials. Engaged in the ongoing process of educational improvement, educational facilitators and curriculum coordinators increasingly are looking at physical education classes. One of the major objectives of physical education is to promote a lifelong involvement in physical activity.

Timber Creek Regional High School offers a selective physical education program to assist student performance and participation. Selective physical education is the next alternative to improving the atmosphere for students as well as serving as a driving force in keeping students on track and effectively participating in class.

This study is to determine whether the responses to the students' surveys will view selective physical education as positive and empowering, or negative and meaningless using quantitative research.
