Recess

Recess

Not only is exercise beneficial for students’ health, recent studies indicate that it enhances learning; students are more focused after moving their physical activity. I would like to see a citywide standard for all elementary school students to get 30 minutes of daily recess, but I would consider exemptions on a case-by-case basis. If a school leader, with the support of teachers, presents a compelling case against 30 minutes daily, I would listen.
