Every human being has a fundamental right of access to physical education and sport, which are essential for the full development of his personality. Physical education is a vital element in a comprehensive, well-balanced curriculum and can be a major contributing factor in the development of an individual in all aspects of life. It is generally acknowledged that physical education helps in the development of physical, mental, emotional health and physical fitness. Physical education makes a unique contribution to the education of all pupils, it provides them with the knowledge, skills and understanding necessary to perform a variety of physical activities, maintain physical fitness, and to value as well as enjoy physical activity as an ongoing part of a healthy lifestyle. Somehow, the profession of physical education is struggling very hard to make its appropriate place in the academic system in India which is definitely unfortunate. This state of affair is also adversely affecting the teachers of physical education as well in various manners which are related with physical education programs like finance, equipments, place of physical education in the curriculum, participation of students, cooperation of the school authorities & colleagues and parental attitude etc. Teachers are the first responsible people to educate children or youth. Physical Education Teachers (PETs) are an essential part of the school system in both primary and secondary educational institutions. They encourage students to be physically active and promote healthy eating habits.
