A few years back many schools decided to throw dodgeball off the playground due to concerns about student safety. Some have done the same with tag and other games.

Now, in England, “[t]he sack race and three-legged race have been banned from a school sports day because the children might fall over and hurt themselves”.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t the risk of falling over and getting hurt part of being a kid and growing up?
