"Georgia's governor vetoes a bill requiring elementary schools to have recess every day


Georgia lawmakers' attempt to get kids some daily exercise on school playgrounds has been shut down by Gov. Brian Kemp.
Despite research that suggests children can benefit from a break from schoolwork, Kemp has vetoed House Bill 83, which would have required elementary schools to implement a daily recess for students.
The bill encouraged schools to include an average of 30 minutes of supervised unstructured activity time outside every day.
Kemp said he vetoed the bill because it would take away control from local school boards, which currently establish recess policies.

(CNN) ó Georgia lawmakers' attempt to get kids some daily exercise on school playgrounds has been shut down by Gov. Brian Kemp.
Despite research that suggests children can benefit from a break from schoolwork, Kemp has vetoed House Bill 83, which would have required elementary schools to implement a daily recess for students.
The bill encouraged schools to include an average of 30 minutes of supervised unstructured activity time outside every day.
Kemp said he vetoed the bill because it would take away control from local school boards, which currently establish recess policies.

"This local control allows school boards to set these policies based on a thorough understanding of day-to-day educational operations as well as regular interaction with administrators, educators, families, and students," Kemp said.
"House Bill 83 would dramatically restrict this local control, stripping long-held authority from school boards," he added. "While I support expanded recess opportunities for Georgia's students, I am a firm believer in local control, especially in education."





State Rep. Demetrius Douglas, who sponsored the legislation, told CNN he was shocked at the governor's veto.
"I'm just trying to wrap my mind around it," said Douglas, a former NFL player. "I'm appalled that he would have done this. It just shows that he doesn't care about our future and our kids."
Douglas said he did not intend the bill to detract from local control.
"Superintendents were supposed to make up the criteria for 30 minutes of recess. That's not taking control away from them," Douglas said. "How you do it and how you implement it is totally up to you."

I thought they already went on recess on a daily basis in Georgia. I know we did when I was in elementary back in the 90s. And Brian Kemp is a racist, cheating POS.

From my understanding of the reading it depends on the county/district/superintendent...this bill would've made it mandatory on a daily basis but the timeframe for when it took place would still be left to the country/district/superintendent

I bet Kemp weak a*s was cheering him on when he played for the precious Georgia Bulldogs though. These people are so hypocritical that it makes me sick. Those teachers need a break from these kids for atleast 30 mins especially with all the energy they have.

Public School ain't it.

More and more parents are either doing home schooling, Montessori or Steiner.

My son goes to a Montessori school in France. I never rocked with the American Public School system because everything that's being taught is systematically directed by the government.

Is it still mandatory do Pledge of Allegiance in school?

Of course she wouldnt, lol shes all about control

This has nothing to do with recess or Kmps feeling on recess. Its about limiting government control.

Did you even read the article?

"This local control allows school boards to set these policies based on a thorough understanding of day-to-day educational operations as well as regular interaction with administrators, educators, families, and students," Kemp said.
"House Bill 83 would dramatically restrict this local control, stripping long-held authority from school boards," he added. "While I support expanded recess opportunities for Georgia's students, I am a firm believer in local control, especially in education."

Take the issue up with the local boards as it should be.

But not surprised at all at the Boxden commie gang advocating for more government control haha

and nothing will change with your kids. He is vetoing because he feels the decisions on recess and other school procedures should be decided by the local government, not the state. 3

They cut recess in my elementary school when I was in school... instead of the 45minutes they dedicated to recess they cut it down to 20minutes and you could only do it indoors...some "genius" superintendent realized that by cutting recess the 20 minutes saved over the course of the school year would a total of "2 week classroom time" which would put us ahead of federal standards..yeah, great..instead of kids having 40 minutes to enjoy the out doors, play ball, run, etc...they were sitting for 20 minutes just talking...and then we wonder why there is an obesity epidemic in our country...emphasis on physical fitness and health is destroyed at the earliest levels...

Yes, how dare the Governor want to let the local boards decide what's best for their students haha

Judging by your racist post history and ignorant comment , I would think, you would want the white politicians running your state to have less control, not more.

Like what is wrong with him vetoing this? He wants the local board to decide whats best for their students, not the state.

Vetoing the bill does not mean vetoing recess haha Here is is the quote sionce you clearly didnt read the article.

"This local control allows school boards to set these policies based on a thorough understanding of day-to-day educational operations as well as regular interaction with administrators, educators, families, and students," Kemp said.
"House Bill 83 would dramatically restrict this local control, stripping long-held authority from school boards," he added. "While I support expanded recess opportunities for Georgia's students, I am a firm believer in local control, especially in education."

LOCAL CONTROL is the key issue.
