So was reading my hometown paper, not where I live now but close to it. Anyway story on how 2 parents went to school board to object that their kids missed recess as punishment for missed assignments.
For real??? This is our school policy as well and honestly I don't the issue. One parent complained her kid missed for 6 weeks. HELLO why not nip it in the bud by asking your kid is your homework done??? They are complaining its an unfair policy. Let me tell you as a mom of an ADHD kid with other learning issues he will do EVERYTHING to get out of work but make him miss recess just ONCE and he will make sure it don't happen for awhile longer at least. That was one of the ONLY ways I could get him to do the reading log last year. You don't turn it in you miss recess, it was a GREAT motivator for me and his teacher. Yes he needs that break but he also needs to do the work. I got a kick out of a school admins comment. Something to the effect that missing recess but sure as gets missing work done.
