    Not only do they (and I) need this time, it provides time to catch kids up on missed tests or late work, time to help kids who need more attention on a lesson, and it also gives leverage for discipline time as we don't feel we are depriving the children of necessary fresh air and exercise if we take away one recess once in a awhile. We still exceed state guidlines for time in school without starting at the crack of dawn and going until late.

    I'm sorry some schools are cutting back recess this much, unless you are getting daily PE. We are such a sedentary society that kids don't really need to be encouraged to sit any longer than they already do. These kids need to get up and move!!
