Gosh, I wish my son had such a long break for lunch! They have 30 minutes, which quickly turns into 20 if they're coming from the top floor, have to see a teacher about absent work, etc. There's no time after school to see guidance counselors either, because the busses leave so quickly, so he's missed lunch completely for that as well.

Kids are asked to absorb so much information in a day! Their brains need some time to process it all. I think a good chunk of downtime in the middle of the day probably does a lot to increase their learning. It also gives them social time so I imagine they're more focused in class, instead of trying to socialize then.
