Abstract

Research paper deals with the opinions of students of secondary schools on physical education lessons at school. The aim was to find out various aspects of education such as popularity, demandingness, importance of the subject, feelings and emotions during PE lessons, and sport preferences of young people. The results have shown that the opinions of students on popularity, significance, talent, motivation and effort exerted during PE lessons were more positive than negative. Boys stated that they consider the subject not difficult, popular, and they show effort at lessons. Girls stated that the subject is not demanding, popular, but in a smaller degree than boys. Girls marked the subject as less importantn they show less talent for it and are less motivated for it than boys. As to boys, PE & Sport lessons evoke always or mostly emotions, while the answers of girls oscillated between mostly emotional, sometimes emotional or sometimes unemotional. Difference between the answers of boys and girls was statistically significant on the level of p<0,05. The answers of boys and girls to the question concerning cancellation of a PE lesson were oscillating between the values 2 and 3 (I am often happy; my opinion is indifferent), despite the fact that they stated in the questionnaire that they mostly feel well at PE lessons. The difference between both genders is statistically significant on the level of p<0,05. The answers of boys and girls to the question concerning satisfaction with the content of PE lessons oscillated between the values 2 and 3 (satisfied; partially satisfied, partially not satisfied). Generally we can state that the answers of students were more positive than negative. The difference between the answers of both genders is not statistically significant on the level of 0,05 (p=0,07). The answers to the question concerning the quality of PE lessons oscillated between the values 2-3 (mostly of good quality, changing quality). Boys presented a little more positive answers than girls, however, the difference between both genders is not statistically significant on the level of 0,05 (p=0,411).
