Paedeia Episode 4: The Case for Recess

As you heard in Episode 3, the current round of school reform has resulted in massive changes to our education system. Along the way, there have been several unfortunate casualties. Namely, we have all but eliminated PE, Art, and Music from schools for the sake of increasing academic engaged time.

In this podcast, in addition to addressing issues related to the elimination of PE, Art, and Music, Dr. Berney and Dr. Richard discuss the importance of Recess and why this unstructured “play time” is critical to overall healthy development and academic progress.
