ABSTRACT

The study aimed to determine problems encountered by Religious Vocational Secondary School and other Secondary School students in physical education and sports activities and to compare these problems according to school type and gender. A questionnaire named "Problems encountered in attending to physical education and sports activities" developed by the researchers was applied. A Religious Vocational Secondary School selected with random method in Sakarya Province and a Secondary School selected from other Secondary Schools was determined for the research. Questionnaire form was applied to 400 volunteer students in total. Frequency analysis and Chi-square analysis were used. It was found out that male students encountered with more problems than female students regarding their school lives, organizations and institutions and families. Moreover, problems regarding school lives in Religious Vocational Secondary School and other Secondary School students had similarities; however, problems regarding organizations and institutions as well as families were experienced more frequently in other Secondary Students than Religious Vocational Secondary School students. In conclusion, male students and other Secondary School students experience problems in every field and they express these problems more frequently as they attend physical education and sports activities more than female students and Religious Vocational Secondary School students do.
