I mean is that ridiculous or what? I read about this in the paper today that schools are doing away with recess. Either that or banning games like tag, getting rid of swing sets all because they are concerned about the risks of lawsuits from accidents. I can't find the link to the article I read but when I googled the topic more came up.
Obviously, the critics are going crazy. Kids today are overweight and not having a chance to get their heartrates up doing the day will only make the problem worse. They won't have a chance to recharge themselves for learning either.
