CRANKY CURMUGEON ALERT #23
Among reasons given for the decision: "the games are a distraction"; they "can lead to fights"; and "theft . . . since elementary students can't lock their lockers." I'm not sure I follow that last part entirely, but who am I to question it? Anyway, my favorite passage from the article is this:
Principal Edmund Heffernan said the problem has increased in the last year and a half and involves a small group of older students who "don't like to run around."That's right! It's always the "older" kids sitting around, setting bad examples for the innocent & active youth. As opposed to, let's say, their parents, who never sit on their asses staring at an electronic screen, right?
