children need breaks from teachers and the stress of work they need time off they need time to there selves because there life and home could be hard and stressful and i know school can be hard and stressful even just 20 minutes of free time everyday could help more than people think


OK well while giving students breaks does indeed give them a boost of positivity and energy, it also leads to a reward system that impairs their learning. Students will support breaks themselves, because not many children/adolescents WANT to work. The reason it impairs learning is because by creating a reward based system of breaking, it causes students to think about the upcoming breaks, taking away from their schoolwork. Same as at the end of the day or at lunch, students are excited to leave and will miss a portion of the material being taught as their attention focuses towards the upcoming relief.
