Gov. Brian Kemp vetoes bill requiring elementary schools to have recess every day

Georgia lawmakers’ attempt to get kids some daily exercise on school playgrounds has been shut down by Gov. Brian Kemp.

Despite research that suggests children can benefit from a break from schoolwork, Kemp has vetoed House Bill 83, which would have required elementary schools to implement a daily recess for students.

The bill encouraged schools to include an average of 30 minutes of supervised unstructured activity time outside every day.

Kemp said he vetoed the bill because it would take away control from local school boards, which currently establish recess policies.
