Amy S. HA（夏秀禎）& Lijuan WANG
Like other subject areas, physical education throughout the past decades has been influenced by an array of trends, issues, research studies, and public policies. In general, the development of physical education is responsive to the needs and concerns of the society. A critical review of physical education is particularly important in Hong Kong at this time, given the widespread public concern regarding the content of the existing physical education program and the fitness levels of the Hong Kong youth. Therefore, the goal of this paper is to describe the different ways researchers have gone about studying the following: (1) Overview of the Physical Education Curriculum and Education Reform, (2) Research on Teaching and Learning, (3) Research on Teacher Education, and (4) Future Directions.
