"Sport and Play Are Civil Rights"
The purpose of the event is to dramatize the demand that all Bronx high school students, including those attending small theme schools, should have the right to participate in interscholastic athletics in the sports they are skilled in and that students at ALL Bronx schools should have ample time for recess and physical education. Right now, all too often recess at Bronx schools is being sacrificed for Test Prep. Having CASA Middle School sponsor a field day in the park is our way of reinforcing the importance of play and exercise in the lives of our students
