In this paper, the authors, by use of document consultation, comparative analysis and other methods, carry out an comparison on the development and course construction of physical and health education at Chinese and foreign schools, and discover that a systematic and coherent body and mind health education system from primary schools to middle schools has been formed within developed countries. However, compared with these developed countries, China is still relatively backward. In terms of the course construction, there is still a certain difference between China and developed countries in many aspects such as discipline position, course objective, course content, teaching materials, faculty and policy support, and hence impose restrictions on the development of physical and health education at Chinese schools. According to the conditions of China, the authors put forward the countermeasures of changing the backwardness of physical and health education at Chinese schools through the introduction of the successful foreign experience, including the establishment of health education discipline, the determination of course objective, the improvement of course content, the enhancement to teaching materials in health education, the establishment of course evaluation system, the reinforcement of the faculty quality, and the intensification of the supports by policies.
