7 year-old girl to School Board:
“Have you ever been in a kids’ lunch room at lunch time? If you go to many of these cafeterias, you will see there is hardly enough time to even eat. Many kids end up throwing their food away. Some of the teachers often ask us if we are sure we want to throw the food away but many do anyway because we want to play for the few minutes we have.”
What else do we need to say about the importance of play?
And by the way, this is also why Maslow was an idiot.
And, also by the way, this is why 7 year-old girls should rule the world.
