In this section testing is addressed. Jeremy’s teacher has to sneak in Science and Social Studies. Of course Texas got around that problem by adding Science and Social Studies to the testing. Jeremy faked an earache to get to go to the doctor and Burger King. It is also mentioned that Jeremy’s school had eliminated recess. My school has actually increased recess by 15 minutes this year. This has to do with freeing up aides. Teachers slit recess and lunch duty. Classes are paired and one teacher watches the kids at recess, while the 2nd teacher has her duty free lunch. Then when the kids come in for lunch they switch and the 1st teacher eats her lunch.
Texas also has a law that requires X number of minutes of physical activity each week.
