Recess Movement Gaining Momentum


The growing support for daily recess is gaining momentum. Parents, educators, and public health organizations have all engaged in the effort to bring back daily recess for elementary school students. Their combined efforts are getting some amazing results! In the past 2 years, 15 states have enacted resolutions or recommendations for daily recess for elementary school students. The strategies behind this successful effort to reinstate recess can be found in the Peaceful Playgrounds article, "Recess on the Upswing".
