School infrastructure: the precariousness of travesty public education on physical education in Brazilian schools
Keywords:School infrastructure, School Physical Education, Elementary School
In Brazil, the data from the 2018 School Census shows that the infrastructure of municipal public elementary schools have indicators that are below average, when compared to the federal and state levels, as is the case for only 30% of schools in municipal public administrative scope have sports courts. Thus, the objective was to study the influence that school sport infrastructures have on the quality of the teaching process. These results were challenged by a methodological triangulation with data from the 2018 School Census and the World Survey III of Physical Education 2013. The investigation is characterized as mixed methods, the study of multiple cases of type. As data collection instrument of semi-structured interviews were used. The results demonstrate that physical education is severely affected by the conditions offered by the public system of municipal education. Schools lack basic facilities such as multi-sports courts, facilities, and equipment essential to the development of the teaching-learning process. There are no dressing rooms, bathrooms with showers, water fountains next to the local school for hydration and systematically to classes held in public squares are shared with the neighborhood community.
