The walk to school – could more time to play mean better outcomes for all?

  • Monday, November 3, 2014
In Switzerland it is common for school policies to explicitly prevent parents driving to school, and to encourage the children to do the journey without adult supervision. So my friend’s sons, aged 10 and eight, who live in a small town outside Zurich, very happily walk the half a mile or so daily on narrow steep roads, gathering friends along the way and stopping to play before they go into school. They love it.
