Administrators take action after seeing too many injuries, squabbles
They'll all be in "Hamster Balls" before too long.
(a-la South Park)
Life without risk is not life aat all.
I broke my arm when I fell from the monkey bars in 4th grade too, and I don't remember my parents threatening to sue the school either, they just shrugged and and told me to be careful, next time it might be my neck. WTH is wrong with people now?
We are raising a entire generation of wusses.
No more Smear the queer" on the parking lot?
Next thing ya know they will outlaw kickball and punchball.
It's very sad. A few years ago, when my son was in elementary school, any activity that boys would enjoy was outlawed. No more kickball, playing tag, climbing on things, or even running. The boys were reduced to spending their recess time the way the girls do: strolling slowly around the "playground" while talking. They were quite depressed. For much of the school year it's too dark and cold too soon after school for them to have any chance to play outside when the school day is over, so they got no free exercise at all.
But the important thing is, they're safe and they're being raised to be nice young ladies. < /s>
One of the parents was upset because her son broke his arm? Well, I broke my wrist in two places walking my dog. Guess I have to put her down now. /s
I find the utter hypocrisy, especially here in Arizona where they run summer football camps and have these kids out there running drills in 120 weather. They don't care if the kids get hurt (I can't even count how many kids ended up with heatstroke last summer) as long as it is bringing money in (the football program here brings in a lot).
The whole world seems to have gone insane.
But the schools are fine with Homosexuality...
