Finally a new program of PE in france!

The latest PE programs published on the 26th November 2015 are void of content, without any requirement acquisition in the cultural fields of physical, artistic and sports activities. Learning to perform a handstand to get free, to run faster on a hurdles course, to swim, to serve in badminton, to achieve a hunted French savate or to dance together, to referee a boxing bout, to ensure their comrade climbing or to score a basket have become secondary in the French PE for the French. This lack of ambition in the targeted knowledge leaves the door open to any fantasies or possible territorial inequalities. Isn’t the transmission of common knowledge and skills the cement of our society ?

The snep asked the ministry of education should revise its PE programs for the youth. Until now nothing change. The SNEP decide to publish an alternative program of PE and will send it to all the school in France. This new program publishes by the snep will included in the official program but give more exigence and knowledge for the youth. The PE to stay in the school and to develop his quality must to have ambition and enhancing the physical literacy of the children and the youth."">
