“You’ve got to be carefully taught” – the famous line from the musical The King and I – expresses how many adults feel about the education of young people. “Spare the rod and spoil the child” was a favorite expression of Puritan America. Happily, in the 21st century we are looking for other approaches that will prepare our children to face the world. A good number of our stories are suggesting these new directions.

Olee, Olee, Ocean Free

“Olee, Olee, Ocean Free!” Remember that magic cry when you ran to touch home at the end of a tag, at the end of recess? Well, in a way, that’s what we’re doing today. We’re taking a recess from Recess! after eight years on the air and over 2000 programs. We won’t be gone forever, though. Recess! will be taking different forms on our website, which will still be: recess.ufl.edu. And online in the future, we’ll continue doing Recess-like programs that will provide reviews, commentaries, and information, as well as audio and video documentaries and multi-media exhibitions on subjects related to children’s culture.
