For some reason that sounded very familiar to many people:
No way! They should give this new thing a name. Maybe call it “recess” or something. https://t.co/0v2azcl5iI

If only somebody would have thought of that sooner! Oh wait, they did.
Good news: after banning recess, we reinvented it as a shitty adult-supervised mandatory running exercisehttps://t.co/6Knnc2Ji2A

Or as “The Daily Mile” is otherwise known, “the activity formerly known as ‘recess.’”
Next thing you'll do is write an article about some crazy principal doing something totally innovative like learn a musical instrument.
Keep up the great journalistic work.
