Taking away recess from kids is akin to a warden taking yard time away from
prisoners. It has the opposite effect on behavior. Plus, if I'm a teacher,
I want the kids to go out for recess. They burn off excess energy. Recess
wasn't created as a reward for kids. It was created because educators know
that kids can't sit still for 7 hours a day. They also realized that recess
is as much of a break for teachers as it is for the kids.
