'School PE lessons are racist, according to an astonishing taxpayer-funded study.
Teaching children to play football, rugby, cricket, netball and rounders favours ‘privileged’ white students, the politically correct 20-page report claims.
The research, which was criticised last night as ‘ludicrous’ and ‘patronising’ by a top black footballer, says sports that have been taught in schools for generations hark back to Britain’s colonial past and make ‘whiteness’ the norm.
Its authors, who were given a grant of nearly £10,000 to examine PE classes in England and Norway, suggest that learning dances from different cultures should be given greater prominence.
They add that the emphasis in PE on health and fitness could even be imposing Western ideals of how people’s bodies should look.
They also claim that ‘character-building’ practises such as ‘fair play’ have European roots.
But last night former England football star Les Ferdinand, a black player who is now director of football at Queens Park Rangers, derided the study as ‘ridiculous’.'
