This is an injustice because there is not enough equipment for all the students. There were more volleyballs and footballs, but these were the only soccer balls I could find in the equipment room. In order for students to learn the skills in Physical Education, students must have plenty of OTR’s (opportunities to respond). If equipment supply is insufficient, students are not going to get those opportunities to practice, which means they will less likely be successful at that particular skill. This injustice could stem from a lack of funding for the Physical Education department or class sizes are becoming too large in Physical Education. Some classes can have as many as 40-70 students. Even having 20 soccer balls would not be enough to allow every student to get an opportunity to practice.
