A school district in Washington is saying tag is too violent for today’s children. In short, we’re all doomed.
“The rationale behind this is to ensure the physical and emotional safety of all students,” wrote school district spokeswoman Mary Grady in an email to Q-13 Fox in Seattle. “School staffs are working with students in the classroom to ensure that there are many alternative games available at recess and during unsupervised play, so that our kids can still have fun, be with their friends, move their bodies and give their brains a break.”
Sounds like the school district is giving their brains a break too.
And then they wonder why the boys are acting out in class. Oh, don’t worry, just put them on Ritalin. That always helps.
