Why not just ban recess?
Why not just ban recess?
“Mr. Speaker, I once again find myself compelled to vote against the annual budget resolution for a very simple reason: it makes government bigger.” ― Ron Paul

It's sickening what is happening. We are raising a whiney generation of pathetic individuals who think no one wins or loses. Don't understand competition. Know why Tina has two mommys but can't balance a freaking check book and think speaking ebonics and wearing your pants around your ass is acceptable.
Stupid all around.
Giving the child the opportunity to see where the error was and correct it provides the student the ability to not only learn from the mistake but to understand the logic behind the problem as well.
Second, your premise seemed to be that people should homeschool their children so that there was no school for their child to go to to have liability concerns. That would put more people doing homeschool, and more chance that someone would be willing to sue someone else for their child being hurt at home.

1. Our schools don't have plexiglass and windows did used to break so it was a relevant concern.
2. We also got hit in the face with footballs but it wasn't us the schools were worried about. It was the hundreds of other kids ( mostly girls) who didn't want to get hit in the face with a ball. ( helps if you read the post)
3. Chill out you sounds like a miserable old man.
‘This is not peace, it is an armistice for 20 years.’ (Ferdinand Foch. After the Treaty of Versailles, 1919).
We were playing or I had the kids playing dodge ball. It was outlawed a week later. As was football (touch) and other ball related gym and outdoor games where there was a chance of injury. The list goes on and on. It is to the point where again it is just stupid. Far to many parents are not being parents and blame the schools for everything, and in the end the schools and children pay the price.
