ATTLEBORO, Mass. - Tag, you're out! Officials at an elementary school south of Boston have banned kids from playing tag, touch football and any other unsupervised chase game during recess for fear they'll get hurt and hold the school liable.
I'm honestly surprised they didn't ban touching outright as it might be construed as sexual. Seriously. It makes about as much sense as banning it for 'fear they'll get hurt'.
Kids are kids. They should be allowed to play dammit. Oh.. I get it now. Massachusetts educators wants to teach their children how to be good little bureaucrats and all the natural goodness of recess counteracts all that big government conditioning.
Remember kids, Big Brother is watching.. Especially at recess.
