Is this a good thing?


It seems that recess and non-core subjects (including history and science) are being cut back or cut out “in favor of math and reading”:http://news.bostonherald.com/localRegional/view.bg?articleid=132223&format=text as a result of No Child Left Behind. While I’m all in favor of reading and math, the social studies, history, science, and physical education are all very important too. (We’re calling obesity an _epidemic_. Wake up and smell the dusty books, educators!)
