Recess: necessary or just a waste of time?

I would submit to you that an elementary school's policy on recess tells you everything you need to know about that school's seriousness.

 Our Education Establishment for decades has flirted with a total lack of seriousness. How do we know this? Because they found many reasons to downplay or eliminate recess. That means you have millions of restless, unhappy kids who are unlikely to learn anything at all. And when these children squirm and complain, they are labeled ADHD and given Ritalin. 

 Here's a quick look at the debate about recess: "Playing Games with Recess."
