Shephard and Lavalle (1994) strongly suggest that the findings in this study do not warrant a strong argument for daily physical education among primary students. The impact of the added physical education should not be under estimated; however, the differences in the field and performance test were not substantial enough to make immediate changes in the field of physical education.
In conclusion, all but one of the studies showed that more physical education might indeed enhance the academic process. There was no research to indicate that additional physical education could impede the academic achievement of learning through classroom instruction. No justification was found in cutting physical education programs to allow more time for classroom instruction. However, further research is needed to add validity to the argument of whether extra physical education can enhance academic learning. With this proposal, the researcher hopes to be able to advocate in favor of additional physical education. All of the previous studies directly relate to the upcoming research that is proposed. If the results coincide with the research that was reviewed, this will be a positive outcome.
