Re: The 4 R's: Schools may add recess (July 29)

I am happy to read that Miami-Dade schools are
thinking about restoring recess, although the amount
proposed, 15-20 minutes three days a week, isnít much.

Would school administrators or School Board members agree to a work week that allowed them only three 20 minute coffee breaks a week?
