Volusia County parents fight for mandatory recess
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Parents in Volusia County are pushing for mandatory recess for students.
An online petition calls on the school board to mandate a full hour of recess time for every six-hour school day.
The petition already has more than 550 supporters.
Meanwhile, parents in favor of mandatory recess in Orange County are vowing to speak out at a school board meeting Tuesday night.
Those parents have been fighting for 20 minutes of recess each day, but the board says state mandates and testing make that impossible.
