Recess periods are shrinking. Homework is increasing. Tag, soccer, and even running are getting banned on the schoolyard. Cities are building new schools without playgrounds.

Despite countless studies proving that play is integral to children's learning and health, most kids aren't getting enough space and time to play during the school day.

Are you a parent or teacher who is concerned that your school is all work and no play? Defend our children's right to play by signing our Back-to-School Pledge!

I just signed the following petition addressed to: School and parents.

Save play in our nation's schools

Despite countless studies proving that play is integral to children's learning and health, most kids aren't getting enough space and time to play during the school day.
