School District Bans Fun

A middle school in Long Island, New York, has become the safest, and most boring, school ever. The school announced that from now on, things like footballs, baseballs or anything that could potentially hurt somebody, will be banned from recess.

But it gets worse. Playful games of tag and even cartwheels are banned. The school explains that they’re banning these things in an effort to reduce the number of injuries suffered during recess.The loss of physical activities and fun are a necessary casualty of this ban.

The kids, as you would imagine, are not happy with the decision. The school says kids will still be allowed to play with soft, foam balls.

How far are we going to go? Helmets while they sit at their desk in case they fall asleep so they don’t hit their head? No homework for fear of them accidentally stabbing themselves with a pencil? Should parents be bubble wrapping them to send them off to the bus? This is getting ridiculous. Let kids be kids. We fell down, scraped our knees, got some bruises, even broke a bone here and there. THAT’S WHAT KIDS DO. Shield them from everything and you shield them from being well rounded adults. Let the kids play!
