Pretty soon, kids aren't going to be able to do anything.
In one of the dumber moves we've heard about recently, a school district in New Hampshire just decided that dodgeball—yes, dodgeball—should be outlawed in schools because it encourages kids to use violence against one another and promotes violence. The Windham School Board voted to outlaw dodgeball as well as nine other "human target activities" that could potentially result in bullying.
"We spend a lot of time making sure our kids are violence free," Windham superintendent Dr. Henry LaBranche said. "Here we have games where we use children as targets. That seems to be counter to what we are trying to accomplish with our anti-bullying campaign."
Riiiiiiight. Because, playing dodgeball is the problem in the American school system. SMH. We're all for taking drastic steps in order to eliminate bullying from schools. But, banning dodgeball doesn't seem like the right move to make here.
