With schools facing increasing pressure to meet standardized scholastic benchmarks, every minute of the school day has become a precious commodity that has led many to cut out extracurricular activities such as recess.

This webinar provided funders with an update on what some are calling a “War on Recess” and discuss different policy and program strategies being implemented to help keep recess in schools.
