School recess in jeopardy

December 6, 2013 

The headlines in the Nov. 29 BND were interesting. One was about taking away recess -- even though PE classes have been cut and we have a childhood obesity problem -- and replacing it with character education.

Next to that article, the City Council wants to post rules of conduct at its meetings. Maybe someone from the council could stop by the school and borrow some of the classroom rules and character education lesson plans for the next meeting.

I guess bullying is not confined to the classroom.
