Physical education for home schoolers

Evidence shows that home-schooled children often do not have a healthy regimen of physical education in their home curriculum. In response to this problem, a professor of health at Manchester College asked students in a course on physical education to provide services to home-schooled children and their parents. Students apply motor learning theory to develop activities for home schooling families, then work with families to devise a physical education schedule that will properly develop their children s abilities and health.   From Service Matters 1998: Engaging Higher Education In the Renewal of America s Communities and American Democracy Website
