This Thursday, 11am at Leschi Elementary (135 32nd Ave., 98122) Rally for Recess and Equity.
Half the schools in the district get 30 minutes or less of recess--most of that half are 15-20. All in the name of more class instruction. Kids need to move to learn. They need to let off steam, they need to be outside, they need unstructured time and social skill-building time.
The schools with least recess? Central and south end. This is an equity issue. And one of many sticking points in the contract negotiations. Bring kids!
