No one outgrows recess, they just outgrow the playground.

I am told by several sources that this evening the DeKalb County School Board approved 15 minutes of unstructured play "recess" for students in K-5 every day and that the time cannot be taken away as a discipline tactic.

I am sure that this issue has been pushed by many people for many years but I first heard of it just over a month ago from Dunwoody's own, Sustainable Pattie Baker.

Kudos to Pattie and all the others who fight for what they believe in.  Now go outside and play.
