Middle schools should have recess. Recess helps kids be social and make friends. Without recess, kids would be lonely. Also, recess builds bones. Sure, bones could be built in gym, but there is a study that says "The results, published last month in Preventing Chronic Disease, a publication of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, showed that "the greatest quantity and intensity of physical activity" was achieved during outdoor recess, not during indoor gym classes. On average, girls took 41 percent more steps at recess than gym, and boys took 55 percent more." -Post Gazette.
Finally, kids need vitamin D, only obtainable through sunlight, or cod liver oil.
