EDSS 555: Injustice Within Schools
Above is a credentialed PE teacher instructing a lesson to an elementary class.
A form of injustice can be seen in every school across the board. This picture is an example of injustice because the elementary students are privileged to have a quality-credentialed PE teacher at their school. Although there is a California law stating that primary grades need 150 minutes of PE a week with a credentialed PE teacher, many schools today get away with having classroom teachers and teacher aids teaching the children PE. In order for our students to have a quality PE program they need to be instructed by an educator that is specialized in physical education. This will only happen if we gain more accountability and support within the schools.
