Children play tag. They touch each other. “You’re it!”
When children play tag, sometimes they fall down. You know what happens when children fall down.
They get up.
Well, this sort of thing must be stopped. So, a concerned principal of an elementary school in Canada has issued new rules: no touching. No pushing. No shoving. No hitting. No games of tag. From now on: “You’re not it!”
Think of little boys at recess. Better yet, think of them after recess. They will have spent recess safely.
Think about how they will act in the classroom after a recess in which there is no tag.
The screws are tightening. The foolishness is spreading.
