This study shows that school district policies may help improve school practices of withholding recess and allow all students to be physically active during the day.
About the Study:

Mail-back surveys were conducted during the 2008-2009, 2009-2010, and 2010-2011 school years. A total of 1,919 surveys were received. Data on corresponding school district polices was gathered and coded.
