Every single person on earth needs a break from work. That is especially true when it comes to children in school. Kids process information differently than adults do. Adding time for play can increase their focus and attention span. Recess offers endless benefits to a child’s cognitive, social and emotional well-being. That is why it is imperative that it is not withheld as a punishment. There are still seven states in the US where recess can be withheld as a punishment from students and other states that have no laws whatsoever regarding recess.
