Summary/Abstract: Physical education is a form of youth participation in physical culture and it is a special part of it. Apart from sports and physical recreation, physical education aims to prepare the young generation to participate in physical culture. However, this preparation is understood differently. Originally, movement classes at school were aimed at body gymnastics with the intention of strengthening the health of exercising youth, thus preparing them for an active life. Currently, according to the humanistic concept of physical education, it aims to shape the personality of the pupil, his attitudes and beliefs towards physical culture. This change has significant implications for the effects and quality of physical education. The article discusses the quality of modern physical education in the context of the pedagogical changes made in its goals and, consequently, its content.
