Playgrounds are no more the norm for schools. Children are confined to the four walls of the classrooms. This is so not just in urban areas where land is scarce and expensive – just as education is – but even in the rural areas. There, it is no surprise to see children being taught in the open under trees.
Playground should be essential criteria to set up a school. Sports make equal importance for the proper physical growth of children. A school without playground cannot help students to attain proper physical developments
Physical education is a separate stream, which guides about the various sports to play and develop physical strength which demands appropriate playground.
