Schools Deem Dodgeball, Tag, Duck-Duck-Goose, and Others As Inappropriate

A new “guidance document” from the Alabama State Department of Education has recommended games and activities that you experienced as a kid now be removed from schools. Games like Tag, Dodgeball, Duck-Duck-Goose, and Red Rover have been deemed inappropriate because they lack “physical stimulation” and have potential for a “high chance of embarrassment for students.” This isn’t a “ban” and teachers still have the right to choose the games in physical education classes – they’ve just been strongly encouraged to go in one direction over another.
