A Manatee County (Florida) mother is criticizing her local school district for shortening recess time for elementary school students.

According to news reports, the mother, who happens to be an estate lawyer, is considering a lawsuit after her third grader came home from school "stressed and upset" because she did not have recess. The mother plans to bring a motion before the school board to restore recess time in all elementary schools.

The school district maintains that all students are getting the required amount of time for physical activity each week, but acknowledges that recess time may have been shortened if the students are getting more physical education time. The mother counters that parents were never told about a plan to reduce recess time.
