Learning Through Play: Education does not stop when recess begins

Galvanized by both the rollback of recess in some places and the stronger science backing play, and bolstered by a relatively new focus in education on social-emotional learning, preventing bullying, and reducing childhood obesity, recess has made something of a comeback. As recess rebounds, albeit not as swiftly as some would like, advocates have begun to make headway not only in bringing play to more schools, but in making sure that play at recess benefits all children and not just the most vocal or outgoing.
