Good Men Project Lead Editor, Michael Kasdan, talks education and recess in TV interview.
At many schools across America, recess time is declining, and schools are saying “there’s nothing we can do.” But is that true?
What are the implications of an education system where children are tested more than taught, where there lives are so structured that they are not allowed time to play?
Michael Kasdan, Lead Editor at The Good Men Project, appeared live on HLNTVs The Daily Share to discuss!
Michael discussed the reasons we need more unstructured time and more play. He drew on his discussions with his own two children, Jacob and Lauren, his own work with CityScience, the STEM education non-profit he chairs, as well as the work of another Good Men Project contributor, Dr. Kwame Brown, who develops innovative methods that promote active play.
