This article offers suggestions for strengthening public school physical education. One situation that contributes to a weak program is the loss of physical education teachers who leave schools because of an inability to provide a high quality program for their students. One reason for this inability is the lack of collaboration with colleges and universities that have the ability to conduct research in this field. The author of the article believes that one of the reasons university professors don't collaborate in such projects is because they aren't rewarded for the time needed or for doing the things that could be beneficial to physical education teachers and their programs.
