Outrageous Schools Spend Thousands on 'Recess Consultants' to Make Playtime 'More Inclusive'
Two elementary schools in the Edina Public Schools district in Minnesota have spent tens of thousands to hire "recess consultants" in order to make kids’ playtime "more inclusive."
Concord and Normandale Elementary are receiving guidance from a firm called "Playworks" on the politics of the playground, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
Games and activities, like four square and jumping rope, are overseen by adults and designed to reduce disciplinary problems while ensuring that no children are left out.
Phrases like, "You’re out!" are replaced with "good job" or "nice try."
Edina school officials spent about $30,000 on the recess initiative over the summer.
