By using literature review and logical analysis, the paper focuses on some phenomena alienated from the “people-oriented” concept in physical education in primary and secondary schools, such as the alienation from the main function of PE, the “only student-oriented” idea, the change of teaching content, the over-emphasis of safety PE, and the neglect of sporting techniques, etc. If the alienations from the “people-oriented” concept are not shifted to the proper way, the consequences will be serious. The PE course as well as the teachers will be marginalized, and the physical conditions of the students will even be undermined. Many reasons contribute to this: the misunderstanding of the “people-oriented” concept, the imperfect PE law, the uncomplicated insurance mechanism, the indifference of the teaching responsibility, and the distortion of safety education. Accordingly, some suggestions are provided at the end of the paper: to deepen the understanding about the “people-oriented” concept; to perfect the PE law and the relevant insurance mechanism; to strengthen the awareness of teaching responsibility, and to redefine safety in physical education. The society and schools should know that the injuries in PE classes sometimes are inevitable, but we should not give up some necessary teaching activities. With the improvement of the PE law and the insurance mechanism, the PE teachers should rationally treat some high, difficult and dangerous sports events benefiting the students both physically and mentally.
