    It's a real shame that many schools no longer see the value of recess. To expect young children or even teens to sit quietly for 8 hours a day is unrealistic...I challenge even the most focused adults to do the same and remain productive without some sort of break. It's been shown that a child's brain retains information better when the lesson is coupled with some sort of movement (hence the common recommendation by most experts to limit screen viewing and encourage children to participate in their learning & play). However it's increasingly common for schools to favor desk time over arts & recreation.
