Making the case for recess

Providence, R.I. – Parents met with school officials in East Providence last night about a controversial new recess policy. The policy ends 10 minutes of playtime before or after lunch, and some parents say that's a mistake. School officials say they are trying to improve recess not do away with it.

WRNI's Elisabeth Harrison says the argument mirrors a national discussion about the effect of a decrease in free play time for children.
