ABSTRACT
The purpose of this study was to evaluate attitudes toward physical education of children in urban middle schools. Participants were 204 middle school children from urban communities in the northeastern region of the United States who participated in a survey with direct administration. Results indicated that the attitudes that children viewed most important to the physical education curriculum were teacher-infused enthusiasm, a teacher’s emphasis on the importance and fun of physical education, and the student’s recognition of the applicability of physical education throughout life.
