aims, standards, outcomes

This chapter explores the extent to which the aims, standards or outcomes for physical education are somewhat similar regardless of where in the world physical education is being taught and practiced. Such aims, standards or outcomes assist all those involved in teaching physical education to be accountable in providing meaningful, relevant and worthwhile opportunities for young people that successfully demonstrate what they should know and be able to do. The intention in this chapter is not to consider if one system is more effective than the other but rather to provide a perspective on the international practices of physical education.
