Elementary School Bans “Tag” From Recess
A Nashua New Hampshire Elementary School has banned the game of “Tag” because of safety concerns.
The principal said that the policy has always been “no contact” and this game violates the policy.
According to Fox News, Charlotte Avenue Elementary School Principal Patricia Beaulieu “I went into fifth-grade lunch and I was talking to all the fifth graders, and I said, ‘Raise your hand if you’ve ever been pushed aggressively while playing tag.’ Most of them raised their hands,”
Some parents did not agree, like Bill Chisholm, the father of a fourth grader who said,
“To ban tag is just ridiculous; it’s a simple game,” Chisholm told the Telegraph. “They say the kids are overly aggressive — take the overly aggressive kids out of the game.”
How do you feel about the decision?
