The Use of Discretionary Time in the Primary School.
Galton, Maurice; Fogelman, Ken
Research Papers in Education: Policy and Practice, v13 n2 p119-39 Jun 1998
Analyzed how British primary schools interpreted discretionary time, noting how that interpretation related to amounts of time given to different subjects within the National Curriculum. Surveys and interviews indicated that over half of the schools had 5% or less of the week available for discretionary time. Circle time and health education were the most common uses for discretionary time. (SM)
