First and second graders have recess at Sexton Elementary School in St. Petersburg in December. Pinellas "recess moms" have created a website to keep parents informed on where local politicians stand on school health issues.

There are many education issues that aren't in the presidential election limelight such as testing, recess and school nurses.

Pinellas County parents Christie Bruner and Stephanie Cox, the self-proclaimed "recess moms" who last year lobbied for mandatory daily recess in elementary schools statewide, have created a website with information on where local candidates stand on school health issues. 

Parentvote.org posts interviews from School Board, Florida state senate and representative candidates on daily recess, the school nursing shortage and high-stakes testing.

"Our goal is to make this information accessible and relevant to more parents," Bruner said. "And to encourage everyone to be educated about their local races."
