Investigating effect of Manitoba’s province-wide PE policy on secondary school students’ physical activity: Webinar
Webinar, Free, 1 hour. In fall 2008, Manitoba implemented a province-wide policy requiring a physical education (PE) credit for students in grades 11 and 12, the first of its kind in Canada. The PE curriculum requires grades 11 and 12 students to complete a minimum of 55 hours (50% of course hours) of moderate to vigorous physical activity during the school semester to achieve the course credit. The study being discussed during this session examines the impact of this PE policy on secondary school students’ moderate to vigorous physical activity as a large natural experiment. Findings can provide evidence about policy features that may improve the PE policy in Manitoba and inform future PE policies in other jurisdictions.
