So proud of fellow founders of the Global Recess Alliance, Pasi Sahlberg and William Doyle for their latest work!  

When schools reopen, we should not ask how much learning time children have lost, but what they have learned while schools have been closed…Dr. Andrew Garner, also noted that, “The research is clear that children benefit from recess, not only academically but physically, socially and emotionally… After ‘social isolating’ for a number of weeks — heaven forbid months — one could actually argue that re-socializing children through regular recess should be a top priority.”
