Every year, kids around the globe mope about the first day of school, the day Summer comes to an end. The saddest part of each day, is knowing that summer is gone, and school is here to stay.
I've done nothing this Summer, and school is tomorrow
. I just can't wait for the screaming children, the nagging teachers, the roaring hallways, and the homework... not. It's even better that i'm in my ex-best friend's mom's class. Who- did I mention- hates my guts! Urg, anyway enough about me, why not bring us all down with some dumb facts about school, just to get us in the mood!
Did you know Dodgeball is banned in many schools?
Due to its "aggressive" nature, dodgeball has been banned in schools across North America, as it's frequently named the cause of injuries and fights. Adult dodgeball, on the other hand, has been enjoying a continued popularity.
And so is making Best Friends.
No more BFFs for you, British kids! At a few U.K. schools, teachers are preventing children from making "best friends" in an attempt to save others' feelings. I, personally, agree with this one ;v;
Some doctors tried to ban milk from schools!
Milk was always seen as part of a wholesome school lunch, but now a group of doctors wants it off the menu entirely. A vegan and physician group in the U.S. is pushing a petition to get rid of milk in schools, due to it being "...high in sugar, high in fat and high in animal protein that is harmful to, rather than protective of, bone health."
Houston Texas has tried Forcing Students to Wear Electronic Tracking Devices.
Two Houston, Texas, area schools started handing out radio frequency identification tracking tags to the students in the attempt to track the kids' movements on campus. The idea is to make it easier for administrators to make sure the students go to class (remember, state funding is tied to attendance). I've heard of kids skipping school, but dang!
Many schools, including mine, have banned cake, and or treats for their birthdays, or just in their lunch!
It's crazy! I could see why , though, if one kid was absent and didn't get any, or just because it's unhealthy. Please! It's their birthday! Let them eat cake!
I wish you all good luck with this new school year.
And don't eat the soup. Don't ask , ok? Sources : www.cracked.com/article_19339_…
