Limiting recess is limiting creativity, problem solving skills, opportunities for interpersonal skills and the creation of new friendships outside of the homeroom. I would like my children to survive happily in the 21st century with the fundamental, lifelong personal tools learned on a playground: Let him / her feel successful creating a new game, new rules, new roles, new characters and having others join in. For many who struggle academically it may be the only chance all day to take respite from struggle and allow confidence to blossom. I will not accept restricted recess for my children. There must be other ways of increasing academic performance. I support the high standard of teaching at this school but feel that restricting recess is a backwards step for creating well rounded, balanced and successful children.
