Read this excerpt from Brad and Melody's book to learn why it's important that educators press NOW for more movement, more recess, more physical education in every school day. For example, this stunning fact:

Core muscle strength actually affects the area of the brain which controls executive function. Research shows that only one in twelve students now has the core muscle strength and balance of students from the 1980’s, only 1 in 12!!

Interestingly, the 1980s is when many schools began to reduce recess and playtime in schools. (It is also when child obesity rates began to climb at an alarming rate.)
