If you pay attention you won't get hit in the head!

Post  fshnski on Wed Mar 27, 2013 2:26 pm

It only took me one hit to the head to realize I better stop looking out the window and pay attention to the game. I ended up really enjoying the game of dodgeball. Here is one more story about changes for everyone to placate a minority.


WINDHAM, N.H. —A New Hampshire school district has banned dodgeball and other "human target" activities over concerns about violence and bullying.


The school board in Windham voted 4-1 last week to remove the game and nine others from the district's curriculum.

The Eagle-Tribune reports the board voted after a committee of physical education teachers studied the issue. A middle school parent complained his child was bullied during a dodgeball game.

The committee recommended eliminating the game, and others, including prison ball, slaughter and bombardment.

School Board member Dennis Senibaldi, who cast the sole vote against the ban, said the district already has rules that are set in place to deal with bullying and doesn't need to ban a round of games to enforce them.

Where I grew up, we never had the dodgeball game. I even had to look it up. Embarassed

So I'm not qualified to give an opinion.
