- Recently the school physical education comes to a crisis as the knowledge-based social atmosphere culminates and thε public education system is on the ebb. Although the fact that an approach through physical education program is more effective in solving the youth problems educationally was acknowledged by much of related research, the current social atmosphere and educational climate give rises to anxieties in that thε recognition and support for the physical education program in school is gradually degraded. So it is urgent to normalize the school physical education in order to nurture the youth wholesomely. Therefore the purpose of this study is to grope for developing tasks of the school physical education, which could contribute to nurturing the youth soundly. For this purpose we examined cultural characteristics of thε youth. We focused not only on diagnosing realities of the school physical education, but also on understanding the problems to be solved. As a result, we pointed out the problems which hamper the normalization of the school physical education like the following: (1) a distorted view of the physical education; (2) a lack of physical education teachers' expertise and accountability; (3) problems in physical education teacher education; (4) troubles in constructing and managing the curriculum; (5) poor condition in physical education. Based on these problems, we presented directions for the further development and tasks as follows: (1) enhancing the recognition of physical education; (2) thε development of physical education program and teaching method which consider the students' interest; (3) the qualitative improvement in the content of regular physical education; (4) activating the extra-curricular physical activities; (5) the expansion of physical facilities and space.
