Recess shouldn't be banned because maybe during recess you can play sports and it will help your physical intelligence grade. It also helps you take a break from hard work.

First of all I'm almost positive that I'm going to lose this debate but ah well.

School is for learning not for playing. There are 24 hours in a day, say school lasts for 7 hours (never actually counted and really couldn't be bothered) then there's still 17 hours for a child to play. A child should be asleep for ten hours that still gives a he/she 7 hours to play or exercise. then say they have a lot of homework (but they'd have even less to do because they'd get more work done in school) that could take about two or three hours at the very most. That still leaves 4 or 5 hours to play or exercise. That is definitely more playing time than you'd have at recess. Besides, a child only needs one hour of exercise a day. So that still leaves time for watching tv, playing games ect.

well it will give children a break from learning, and would you really want a break from all that hard work? Some schools have courts and fields, which will help everyone with the P.E. grade, like i said earlier.

Yes but they might not have to work as hard if they have more time to get everything done.
