My comment:
(a) In Finland: "Students got a 15-minute outdoor recess every single hour of the school day, rain or shine."

I wonder what is so special about itl after all, school children from primary schools to colleges experience the same.

(b) "In China, an experiment in outdoor-play-based preschool and kindergarten known as Anji Play 安吉游戏 [2014- ; initiated by 浙江省湖州市安吉县 教育局学前教育科科长 程学琴女士] is proving so successful in more than 100 rural schools that it is being expanded—and widely hailed as a national model for early childhood education.
