As you may know I’m a retired principal but I’d be the first to admit that changing the education system is a lot like turning around a huge cruise ship in a small harbor. Possible but not probable and it requires lots of maneuvering.
However, a few brave principals across the nation are doing just that and bringing a long stranding school tradition to an end. They are advocating recess before lunch.
And in doing so they are getting some amazing results. Kids eat more, waste less food, return to class calmer, behave better and as a result instruction time is increased.Listen to this weeks PodCast Program -
