  1. Even after reading the link I am confused, or perhaps I just don't have children so I don't understand. What happened to children going outside and playing at recess? Yes, children should be taught how to resolve conflict that arises out of recess. Doesn't the recess monitor do that? Yes, healthy play is good, isn't that what PE is about? And, aren't those two schools safe for children? 19K seems a bit to spend when there are other classroom expenses.
