NEWARK -- An elementary school here has hired a $14-an-hour recess coach to deal with behavior problems during what had been free time for the students, according to a report in The New York Times.
The report said Broadway Elementary School Principal Alejandro Echevarria hired Brandi Parker to run organized games for students during recess. Concerns about obesity, bullying and a lack of socials skills have led a growing number of schools across the nation to try different approaches to recess.
