LITTLE ROCK, AR -- A New York middle school has banned footballs for fear that children might get hurt. There’s more to the story than that, of course, but that’s the basic gist: Weber Middle School in Long Island, New York, has banned hard footballs, baseballs, lacrosse balls and other recreational equipment, as well as some kinds of play, in an effort to help protect students from injury. Overprotective nannying designed to reduce liability at the expense of kids’ enjoyment? A responsible measure designed to protect developing bodies from concussions? There are arguments for both sides, but either way, Weber Middle’s policy will start arguments. In today's Breakfast Buzz we want to know what you think about this ban.
