Formatted Abstract/Summary The challenges facing contemporary teacher education are significant. Moreover, physical education teacher education (PETE) faces particular challenges that relate to the nature of physical education as a school subject and the centrality of the body in identity making. In this chapter, I discuss some of the tensions and dilemmas that confront PETE and offer a modest critical pedagogy as a realistic aspiration in an increasingly troubling context. In the face of conceptions of education as human capital and the juggernaut of increased prescription regarding competencies and standards, I contend that it is how physical education teachers think about education, social justice, physical activity, bodies and health that is the most important graduate attribute.
