Home – The Recess Grinch

The Recess Grinch

Man, it just ain’t any fun being a kid these days. Case in point comes from Georgia, where Gov. Brian Kemp last month vetoed a bill that would have required most Peach State schools to schedule recess time for kids in grades K-5. But as the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports, Gov. No Fun squelched that, saying the mandate was too burdensome for schools. Given that the bill passed overwhelmingly in both legislative chambers – and that parents, a.k.a. voters, also overwhelmingly support it – his veto might end up being too burdensome for lawmakers not to override.
