It is essential that school systems in the United States strive to make physical education programs as safe as possible. To ignore this fact is to invite mass disapproval by the general public. Once this has happened a curtailment of physical education programs could take place which would, eventually, have detremental effects on the physical fitness of youth. As in any other phase of school work the primary responsibility for the successful functioning of the school safety program in physical education rests with the administrator. To meet this responsibility with intelligent leadership should be of prime concern to the administrator. Any halfhearted effort will inevitably lead to poor teacher cooperation and an inefficient safety education program.
