Some examples would be not already seeing through the fact that sometimes it's okay to tell on people, and the fact that she still seems to believe that numbers like a gazillion exist. My only guess is that she's 9, so it's slightly excusable, or she knew the truth all along and, in an effort to fit in more, she just followed [[Main/SwordOfTruth Wizard's First Rule]].

* There's also the fact that before the movie was released there was an episode where the Government did an experiment of ''actually cancelling recess'' that resulted in lower test scores in the long term, was he not aware?

** It isnt that far out, remember the movie revolves around a guy with a giant gravity gun he's using to move the friggin MOON, that sounds like a plot straight out of Kim Possible

* Its simply because kids today, even during the 90's and early 00's when the movie was made, have a very different and difficult journey to prepare for due to how complicated the world has become. Many parents begin preparing their children in ''preschool'' because they want them to have a bigger chance at getting into prestigious colleges and careers for whcih competition has never been stiffer.

Added DiffLines:

* In Taking the Fifth Grade, why would the faculty wait to take all the play equipment and pave the lawn on the first day of school, much less when the kids are supposed to be out for recess?

** Not to mention that Recess takes place in the late 90's (the show original air run being 1997-2001). Kids believed in those things back then before they started to wise p at earlier ages.
** One part Nostalgia Goggles, one part cultural drift; every generation grows up faster than the one before it. When Recess was on TV, it was aimed at kids around the same age as or younger than the main cast, which meant 6-10 year olds, with ParentalBonus gags. Kids that age today are exposed to much more adult media, and some of them have probably had MySpace/Facebook pages ''since they were born'', so the internet (and the.. uh, shall we say [[GreaterInternetFuckwadTheory social interaction unrestricted by traditional etiquette that comes with it)]] are a very basic part of their lives. Kids today aren't any more ''mature'', but they have access to a lot more information.

** As for the bus driver, it's possible she genially doesn't remember his name since he has only just started.

** I...don't really know (And Naked Mole Rats aren't fantasy elements...[[KimPossible but of course, they don't act like Rufus in real life]]).
** If recess takes place in the same world as Lilo and Stitch it takes place in a world where earth is a mosquito preserve and Hawaii has a decent number of genetic experiments. Seeing recess as taking place in a universe with all the crosovers in Lilo and Stitch has some awesome potential the kids having a future in a world even cooler than they believe it is now but is not nescasary for it taking place in the Lilo and Stitch universe. You can just pretend the other crossovers didn't happen, happened differently, and/or the people in the crossovers are similar but entierly different people who live in a different universe than the series they are from. If recess does not take place in the same universe as Lilo and Stitch either the crossover is only Lilo and Stitch canon but not recess canon or the kids in the Lilo and Stitch crossover are just simular to TJ and his group.
* Also related to the above. Recess seemed like a poor series to be crossed over with. Kim Possible and American Dragon have fantasy topics but Recess seemed fairly realistic. Plus Recess takes place in 97 and 98. Kim Possible and American Dragon are ''so'' not 90s, and Proud Family is more like New Millennium.

* Prickly and Finster seem to follow the out-of-touch teacher archetype. They used to genuinly love teaching and wanted to help children, but over the years they've become cynical and forgot why they ever wanted to go into teaching in the first place. Plus the show is very inconsistent with their levels of villainy. Sometimes Finster is just strict for a playground monitor and Prickly an ineffective principal, other times they want to ban recess and hate the idea of children having fun. It changes depending on the needs of the plot.
