Recess can reduce bullying and prepare students to learn
from The Washington Post
Research released this past spring shows that recess — when it's well-organized — can make a real difference in schools, resulting in students who feel safer, bully less and are more ready to learn. "Recess and other school-based playtime are some of the least studied elements of the school day," says the study, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. "This new research contributes to a growing body of evidence that a safe, healthy, and organized recess environment has the potential to be a key driver of better behavior and learning."
