ABSTRACT
This article describes a program in South Carolina called the Teacher Education Center for Children's Physical Education (The Center) which linked a public elementary school (K-6) and a university working together to improve children's physical fitness. The Center is based on the assumption that undergraduates, graduates, and teachers are all learners at various stages of professional development. The Center has learned that it is easier to implement its program in schools with no physical education specialist, the quality of the experiences in the schools depends directly upon the control The Center has in selecting classes to use and the lesson and content to include, and personnel support is essential to success.
