This article discusses the concern that physical education classes in public schools do not reflect the cultural background of the students that attend. Students in urban areas were given a questionnaire, which focused on their likes and dislikes about physical education, the importance of physical education to their overall education, values developed through physical education, and positive and negative experiences in the curriculum. The responses to the questionnaire are broken down according to means, ranges, frequencies, percentages, ethnic groups, gender, and grade level.
