the "bullying" agenda continues to grow - School district bans dodgeball


and the pu**ification of America continues -



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

School Board member Dennis Senibaldi cast the sole vote against the ban.

"We have rules that are set in place to deal with bullying," he said. "We don't need to ban an entire round of games just to enforce those rules."

The National Association for Sport and Physical Education said there are any number of reasons to drop dodgeball.

"It's an elimination game," said Andrew Mead, program manager at NASPE. "Games like dodgeball and tag don't keep kids involved and physically active. They objectify slower students who don't catch as well."

Senibaldi offered a solution.

"We could just do it on a point system," he said. "So, no one gets knocked out right away."

Dodgeball is a game where you pit the popular kids against the unpopular kids.

How are the geeks/nerds/dorks/wimps going to learn to overcome their obstacles if they don't have any?

You don't beat up the jock? You don't get the cheerleader.

It's that simple.

We had "battle ball". The half court was linned with foam balls. Everyone laid on each side of the court and when they blew the whistle you ran and got your balls. Get hit and you're out. You catch the ball and they're out. The back rows were lined with bowling pins. Object was to knock down all the pins and/or people

I think that they should allow all of the cool kids and jocks a free pass into the band or the glee club then. I mean what's fair is fair right? who cares if the star quarterback or head cheerleader sucks at band or singing? I think it is only fair and American to push them to the front of the line and let them participate so their feelings don't get hurt.

you see what they are trying to do right? where does it stop?

Ever notice how so many school yards have no swings, etc?

Too many law suits.
