Education for leisure : a suggested approach for schools

Sleap, Mike. (1987). Education for leisure: a suggested approach for schools. Leisure Studies. 6(2): 167-179. Published online August 2006. DOI: 10.1080/02614368700390131

Abstract: This paper examines the notion of education for leisure in schools. The present move towards a liberalization of school curricula affords an opportunity for leisure education to occupy a significant role in schools. Although evidence is sparse, it would seem that most schools spurn this opportunity and simply offer pupils simulated ‘taster’ experiences. Thus, it is argued that schools might focus more upon ‘education’ with regard to leisure and a framework is suggested within which such an education could take place.
