Well yesterday the superintendent once again let his feelings be known on kids being kids.
Via Facebook: from Elizabeth Ross who has been spearheading the effort to get children consistent recess.
I was at the Duval County School Board meeting tonight. During the Superintendent’s Report, Dr. Vitti talked about some of the education issues before the Florida legislature this year. He mentioned the Recess Bill, and said it would be a hardship for the district if it had to provide daily recess to elementary students.
The superintendent who spent barely a cup of coffee as a teacher doesn’t understand that if we make school pure drudgery for kids they won’t do well.
Come on superintendent let them play.
