More School Recess

People may think recess isn't mandatory and that it’s even a waste of time. Just think of a life where there's no play time! Think how miserable and depressed people would be. Some studies have been made that shows how beneficial recess is to children. The American Academy of Pediatrics wrote, “Recess is a necessary break in the day for optimizing a child’s social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development.” For example, free play time increases the students’ ability to focus in the classroom. Increased focus leads to better grades in the classroom. It doesn't just increase the learning abilities, it's also a mandatory exercise! You might say something like, " But no! there's already enough physical activity with P.E!" The answer to that is that P.E was originally supposed to be extra activity. It was never supposed to replace recess. P.E was actually meant so the children got exercised and fit to join the military. Recess is it's own fun activity that isn't just for fun. Please help us get more recess to the school children and increase our education benefits. Singing this petition will help the children be happy and enjoy their time at school.
