A Sports and Play Manifesto

1. Recess is Sacred. No test prep during recess. Ever.
2. Physical Education classes should take place a minimum of two days a week during regular school hours and include activities for students at every level of physical fitness.
3. Every school from middle school up should have a full array of intramural and interscholastic sports for Boys and Girls including sports preferred by the new immigrant groups entering school communities.
4. Schools should have regular "field days" during warm weather where students get a break from strictly academic activities.
