differences by poverty concentration
Differences by poverty concentration
  • The percent of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch at the school was used as a proxy for poverty concentration.
  • High poverty schools (75-100% free or reduced-price lunch) were less likely to have any scheduled recess or daily recess, compared to schools with lower poverty concentrations.
  • When the times for physical education and recess were combined, high poverty schools had lower averages in minutes per week.
