Pledge to Save Play in Our Schools!
Are you concerned that your child's school is all work and no play?
Recess periods are shrinking. Homework is increasing. Tag, soccer, and even running are getting banned on the schoolyard. Cities are building new schools without playgrounds.
Despite countless studies proving that play is integral to children's learning and health, most kids aren't getting enough space and time to play during the school day.
