Looks like parents might be able to save recess based on local values.
SECTION�1.��This Act may be cited as the “Freedom to Play and Learn Act.”
�������SECTION�2.��Section 28.004, Education Code, is amended by adding Subsection (l) to read as follows:
�������(l)��The local school health advisory council shall consider and may make policy recommendations concerning the importance of daily recess for elementary school students. The council may consider any research regarding unsupervised play, academic and social development, and the health benefits of daily recess in making the recommendations. The council shall ensure that local community values are reflected in any policy recommendation made to the district under this subsection.
It does make you wonder what other areas parents would be interested in having some influence over. And will this provide “legitimization” for unschoolers? After all, they can use any “research regarding unsupervised play, academic and social development.” Sounds like supporting unschooling to me.
