The socialization of physical education teachers begins in early childhood, results in a subjective warrant for teaching physical education and continues upon entry into teacher education programs. A host of intriguing questions surround these events, the attendant three kinds of socialization, and their relationships. This much has been established in the first of a two-part analysis of teacher socialization (Lawson, 1983), and there is more conceptual terrain to explore in this second part. For the socialization of teachers is life-long and this requires an analysis of what happens to teachers after they complete pre-service teacher education. Such an examination must include actual entry into schools as a salaried teacher, the role orientations that they exhibit initially and in later years, and their longevity as teachers of physical education. It shall become apparent that the questions raised in this second analysis can be linked to those raised in the first, and there are accompanying implications that merit the attention of teacher educators and researchers.
