Normal students are an important force for the development of sports in our country. They undertake an important task for the training of future sports talents. However, from the perspective of principal-agent, public funded normal students of physical education are faced with a series of dilemmas, such as asymmetric information and inconsistent goals among the government, universities and public funded normal students of physical education, and adverse selection and moral hazard appear in the principal-agent relationship between the government, universities and public funded normal students. This paper aims to explore the dilemma of public sports education, and put forward some suggestions for path optimization, as well as to provide reference for the training of public sports education normal students.
