 The Bigger Picture: The economic implications of poor physical education in schools
Physical Education at school; did you love it or, as so many did, hate it? What are the socio-economic implications of loathing enforced exercise? That's the question fascinatingly explored by Dr. Anne Elliott, senior lecturer of the London Sports Institute at Middlesex University and Professor Tim Evans, professor of Business and Political Economy, also at Middlesex. They believe that, conservatively, poor PE teaching could be costing the NHS £1.2 billion a year.
