In “Play 60? Not in the USA!” by Gary Stager, the author mentions a commercial that he saw encouraging kids to play 60 minutes a day. He points out that the enemies of play are the people that turn classes into “joyless test-prepping sweatshops”. What matters to me is that some schools have removed recess from school. Recess is the best part of school for kids! Kids need reccess for developing friendships and using their excess energy so they can focus. Without it, schools might as well be sweat shops. This is what matters to me in “Play 60? Not in the USA!” by Gary Stager.
