The Evolution of Physical Education
Play • 19 min

This episode launches a series where we explore the history of each subject area we were taught in our K-12 education, and seeing it's progression from the mid-1900's to present.

Exploring the evolution of physical education, I speak to Jerry Flora, a pre-K-12 physical education teacher and high school football coach from outside White Plains, NY about currently teaching students and keeping them engaged.

To reflect on the 1960's to today, I interviewed my own father Robert Oates, a retired physical education and dance teacher of 35 years, focusing on how the classroom (or gymnasium) has evolved.
